Cassie, the Shetland Sheepdog, is our first dog to highlight during the Dogs Positively Influence Campaign. She demonstrated all the amazing qualities and natural skills that dogs have for positively influencing their people. Read Cassie's story [...]
Cassie was the best dog ever. I don't want to tell you about all the bad things that happened in my childhood. But I will tell you that if it wasn't for Cassie, I wouldn't be the person I am today. When people at school made fun of me, Cassie was always happy to see me and loved me no matter what. Whenever I was depressed, she was there to lift my spirits. She played with me during the day and comforted me at night. She was my constant companion since I was 10 years old and lived until I was 23 years old.

This tribute to Cassie, and how her presence alone comforted Dawn, brought us to tears. If you have a story to share, please email us. We will be sharing your stories through February 14, St. Valentine's Day.
In honor of St. Valentine, we're spreading the love across the internets, while giving recognition to these dogs we love and who love us.
