Let me invite you inside this journey. When my dog “Storm” was nearing the end of his life on earth with me I desperately tried to be strong but my heart and mind were crushed. He and I had been through so many things together from the onset of puppy-hood, training and sharing our love for Canine Free Dancing that the thought of being without him stifled me. Truly it took me almost 3 years to come to terms with this loss. But once I began sharing our story through “letters to my dog” things began to change for me and essentially the sharing of our life together by writing gave me another outlook; I could keep his memory alive by sharing his stories; our stories. My life with this wonderful beautiful Rottweiler was one that needed to be shared. He became a great ambassador to his breed by dancing with me at the Kennel Club of Philadelphia. At that show we were interviewed by Don Polac of Action News Channel 6 and featured on the program and in the videos of Storm and I dancing there the crowds got to see a graceful and gentle Rottweiler back in these days when Rotties were looked at by the ignorant public and news stories as dangerous. I believe he helped change that; making him even more precious. Take a look inside this journey and give the book a read; it’s heart-breaking, yes, but it does blossom into a loving sharing story of a wonderful dog and his partner; me. ♥
