Pet Diaries: The Bernese Dog That Taught Me to Connect with My Community

John with Abby at the Schwab Rehabilitation Center in Chicago

John Grady and Abby at 4th St. Firehouse, NYC - Engine 33/Ladder9

Abby’s presence and being, her rules and work ethic, were not convoluted with a lot of language. There was no red tape blah, blah, blah. The rules were simple. Just be. Her ability to simply be present is what helped her start the healing.
