Pausing among the dandelions

More: My dog, Nila is a rescue from a shelter in Indiana! I was a college student going to the Vet Tech Institute, and she was accepted into our program as a teaching animal for us to practice on. We learned she came from a very abusive past, where she had been shot and beat, still had pellets in her-but passed all the temperament testing and was one of the sweetest most patient dogs at school! She chose me, and I took her home, despite all my promises to not bring home a dog in such a strange phase of my life. Now we go hiking everywhere together. She now enjoys a life of treats and walks and a very comfortable bed in front of our front door windows so she can look out all day when I’m at work.
