The day we got Brandy, she was dropped off to our house. My sisters and I waited anxiously at the door - poking our heads in and out of the windows. I remember my mom telling us she was a service dog that failed out of training...but apparently she could still open doors. That blew my mind (and ended up not being true).
She is probably the sweetest, kindest and now largest dog on the planet. 13 and still kicking it.
Years ago I received a piece of advice from a school teacher in the form of a quote. That quote has guided my life and I want to share it:
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"
