I find it truly uplifting whenever I hear other people talk about their dogs and what they mean to them. A little terrier, Sparky, walked into my life 20 years ago, when everyone else had walked out. Sparky and her first pup, Streets, literally saved my life. I was battling some serious demons in my life, and in the end, I overcame them because of my two best buddies, Sparky and Streets. I have no doubt that I would have lost that battle if not for them. They have both gone to the Rainbow Bridge now, but I know their tails will wag and they will jump for joy when my time has come and we are reunited for eternity.
