Prayers for healing and strength for your wife. I admire a dog's ability to care and love unconditionally when they have a bond with their owners. It is wonderful that your dog has that connection with your family!
What a sweet little baby. She probably needs comforting too. Dogs have a way of sensing things that we'll never understand. I thank the Good Lord for my little buddy. He's at the back door every day when I come home, trying to get his nose in the crack as soon as I open it. They are a gift from above.
