Clancy the Teacher - Clancy, at 15 years old, is a Canine Good Citizen, therapy dog, Kings Hockey fan & mascot of Downtown Dog Rescue. A survivor of animal cruelty for many years, he came into my life at 10 years of age. Together, he & I have worked to end dog fighting & promote spay/neuter in some of the most underserved communities in the greater LA area.

How Moose Became a Hospice Volunteer - On our visits to the hospice, I’ve heard a few patients tell Moose their life story. They tell him their regrets, favorite days and share their stories. If they cry, he lays his head on their belly, and moves his body in such a way that he’s not putting any pressure on their sore body parts. I’ve watched him stand on one foot, in an awkward position, just so he can lie next to someone as he’s slowing down his breathing.
