Clients and friends often enquire about our beloved Chewbacca ...
He was a gift from beyond. One of life's beautiful souls who chose to work as my therapy dog. He met all where they were on their own path. Extending his paw, his heart, his being. Chews saw who was before him, accepted and radiated love. He was a wonderful teacher.
