Note from dog
Normally, I hand NOTE FROM DOG over to a pup who has earned a starring role in a current story, but this time around, I asked them if I might have their permission to write this NOTE because a lot has happened since we sent our last one at the end of November.

2020 definitely wasn't a great year for humans, but lots of dogs thought it was wonderful.

In this multi-media Washington Post article by Kari Sonde, we learn how Theo, the Boxer, helped his human get through the pandemic.

Emily Gibson, from Dallas, TX, got a puppy during the worst of the pandemic. She got to spend lots of time with him when he work came to a halt. Theo tapped into her nurturing side, she says, and caring for him got her out of her own head.

Like so many people with dogs, she credits Theo with getting her out of the house during the worst days, and with making her laugh when she was down.
