Two Dogs, with love

As a wild horse advocate I live a lonely life traveling the West. Two dogs have been my constant companion. In 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. As I entered radiation treatment my dog, Elvis, died. Mourning the loss of my dog and fighting cancer, as a homeless person fighting for our wild horses, was too much for me. People that follow my journey banded together to buy me a puppy, Krieger. With that new dog by my side, I stepped forward again.

Doing this video short was simply a chance for me to thank my best friends for the love and support they give me with this work. This short is just a "love letter" to my dogs.
A big thank you to Margie Quirk and the staff at Lone Mountain Veterinary Hospital for being there for Elvis and filling the hole in my broken heart with a huge new fluff ball. Thank you Lorie Conway for creating the most perfect Bernese Mountain dog for me, Krieger. Krieger saved my soul in the darkness.
