Bo: An Update from Austin, Texas

Hello, Secondhand Mutt Family,

I wanted to send you an update on Bo. He moved with me to Austin, TX in September of 2016 and has been enjoying all the dog friendly parks and places around town. After working for 2 years as a school based therapy dog, he’s had a few months to relax and settle into his new home. He has lots of trails to explore, fields for fetching, and creeks for cooling off.

In February, Bo will join me at a counseling practice to continue working with children, families, and adults. He seems eager to get back to work as he makes an effort to say hello and check in with every person we meet on our walks. Bo has touched so many lives since his adoption, and I cannot thank you enough for pairing him up with me. As a co-therapist he has helped scared and confused kids feel safe, and he can rebuild trust for those who have lost it in ways other interventions cannot. He reminds me everyday what it means to listen without judgment, and shows by example that no matter what has happened to you, life is joyful and loving if you are open to it.

Attached is a picture of Bo taken on Christmas Day during a walk in the park at the end of our street.  He is a happy, wonderful dog and I wanted to let you know how much he means to so many people.

Thank you for the work that you do.

 

Betsy and Bo
