Barbara Niven is a very kind and caring woman, and she is also an advocate for dogs. We saw her recently at the Hero Dog Awards and she asked to get a photo with Dan and I – and of course we were very honored! Barbara and I talked about our dogs and she showed me a photo on her phone of her bed with a small pen set up on it. The pen allowed her dogs to sleep with her, yet prevented them from falling during the night. I love her for sharing that with me … I could certainly relate. Oh, the things we do for our dogs!!
Sadly, on November 3rd Barbara’s precious Chihuahua, Lola, crossed the Rainbow Bridge and Barbara’s been on my mind a lot because of that. I know how loved and cherished Lola was. I think of what Dan told me after Harley passed away, “We wouldn’t feel this pain if we hadn’t experienced the love … and we would not have given up the love for anything in the world.”
I hope Lola and Harley have met by now and are enjoying a romp in the Heavens together.
