|Channeling pain to do good

Barkley - The dog that made me realize the connections that humans and dogs can have. A simple dog who adored all humans, especially those carrying food.|
Rags - The reason that I am still alive. A dog smarter than me, who could push every single one of my buttons. Then, melt me into a blob of love two minutes later.
Chopper - The living example of a gentle giant. All creatures loved Chopper because he was so simple, honorable, and gentle.
Dawkins - The ball loving dog that crawled in my soul and still remains there. Scared of the world and needed so much. Yet, he gave back ten fold in his love for those than earned his trust.
In their memory, I am training to run the Chicago Marathon in October. I will be raising money for several animal charities. The fire that I feel is amazing. It feels good to have an outlet for the grief that I think does justice to these souls that have touched my life so much.
More to come.
