What you love most about your Heart Dog    My heart was broken after losing Max, our Westie, in June 2005. While visiting CVHS in Dover, NH 9 months later, our eyes met & that was it for us! Ashley & I had been volunteering there for 4 1/2 years cleaning dog cages, walking the dogs, doing laundry, etc. I passed Miss Tootsie's cage, our eyes locked, & the rest is history! Miss Tootsie & I have been through the highs & lows of life, including losing my precious Mama @ the age of almost 88 on July 12, 2011. She is my lifeline when I need a warm hug, a little touch from her delicate paw & a soft kiss. We love to stare into each other’s eyes, & there is an understanding between us...A bond so strong that it will never be broken! Initially, I rescued her from a life on the streets of Tennessee, & she rescued me from a life of sadness after losing Max. The happiness & love that we share cannot be put into words...It can only be felt!
