A dear friend of many recently lost his beloved dog, Jasper, aka, ‘Jazzy” to an extended illness. I know that many can relate to the pain of his loss. I’m reminded that the love of a pet owner is often and (at least) quadrupled by the return love of a pet. The dog whisperer in me feels compelled to give a nod to Jazzy’s beloved human, Eric Brown. Eric, without a doubt is one of the finest human beings that I have ever met! I often associate the name, “Eric’ with charity and unselfishly giving to others, most of whom are strangers to him. I briefly mentioned to Eric that, though I wish I can heal his pain, I know I cannot, none of us can (sadly). However, I would be thrilled for you to participate in redefining that pain by helping to light a torch in honor of Jazzy’s loving and indomitable spirit through donations to Eric’s chosen charity, Working Animals Giving Service for Kids.
