From Amy of Mackinaw City, MI

I have struggled with depression for a long time, and the winter season hit me with no work and bills to pay. I eventually hit rock bottom. I knew I needed help, so I sought medical help and counseling. After a winter of counseling and a job with an income, I still felt something missing. My counselor was supportive of the idea of me getting a puppy. The puppy provided me with unconditional love and the support to become assertive by giving me confidence with her training. She is a Chocolate Lab/ Golden Retriever mix and I love her! She keeps me going, gets me outside and is always at my side. I'm very happy and I'm so grateful I adopted Willow. There is no more weeping.
