    All I can say is you are such an inspiration. Thank you for sharing this with everyone. What a wonderful thing at so many levels.

    I could particularly relate to the sensetivity of dogs to a persons state of mind. I often say to others that dogs inspire a great deal of mental discipline. My dog needs to get to know people, but when he continues to react to someone long after he should have accepted them, I know there is more going on.

    I think you have inspired me to come out of the communicator closet 🙂

      I’m so honored that something I said or did has helped you to come out of the closet. Never back away from who you really are. Keep growing and connumicating.

    Hello Shirley,
    Thank you so much for sharing what you are doing in the Offenders Training Dogs program. I was looking forward to hearing your talk tonight (I live in Europe) and was not disappointed. What an awesome program!

    Did the offenders and the dogs you are currently working with know you were going to talk about them tonight? If yes, how did they react?

    Again, thank you.

      Yes they did – they are very excited when I speak about the program and I’m sure I’ll have lots of questions from them when I go in again. They love to share their stories, however many don’t like to share their names or photos because they’re trying to change their lives. Most of the men I work with are not proud of their actions from the past.
