The Gift

by Houndstooth on

I have mentioned in the past that Bunny is not only a therapy dog, but also a hospice volunteer.  We have a couple of lovely ladies that we visit who live at the same nursing home, and I realized that the cold weather had allowed me to put off visiting a bit longer than we […]
