A few years back, a friend introduced me to NSD weekend dogs. I fell in love!

Having recently lost a golden retriever but living in an apartment, the evening program and weekend sitting was a perfect compromise. The dogs were so well behaved and had great personalities. Although the whole having a perfect dog around was a bonus, the first time I attended an NSD grad – I bawled my eyes out – the whole ugly cry, mascara dripping bawl your eyes out!

It was then that I decided that I wanted to make more of a difference. Eventually came NSD Yatzie a big fluffy black labernese puppy. We know some day she will make someone as happy as she makes us!
