Life can be challenging for many of us, and it is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of emotions that we experience in our everyday lives. For me, as a real estate agent, dealing with clients, deadlines, and work pressures can often lead to feelings of frustration and anxiety, making it difficult for me to stay focused and grounded. Everything changed for me when I met Sandy, my service dog. With her by my side, I have learned the power of calmness and how it can change my life for the better. In this blog, I would like to share my journey with Sandy and how she has helped me become a better person. 


The first thing that struck me about Sandy was her calmness. She was patient, respectful and always had a gentle way about her. It was then that I realized that I too had to be calm, and I could not let my frustrations or disappointments get the better of me. With Sandy by my side, I learned to be more patient, more understanding and more accepting. 


One of the things I love most about Sandy is the way she loves me unconditionally. She is always there for me, no matter what. Her presence gives me the strength to face my fears, and even my worst days become bearable with her by my side. Sandy has taught me that life is not just about winning or losing, but about building deep and meaningful relationships and being a responsible, loving person. 


Being a service dog, Sandy has helped me form new friendships and business relationships. People are drawn to her and often start conversing with me because of her. We have helped many clients find their dream homes together, and I believe that Sandy has played a significant role in my success over the years. Sandy is also a great conversationalist, and she loves sharing her stories with people, which is always a great icebreaker. 


One of the most remarkable things about Sandy is that she is not just a service dog, but she is a member of our family. I wanted a girl dog, and Sandy was the perfect fit for us. We make sure to take care of her needs as much as she takes care of ours. Sandy is not just my service dog; she is my companion, my friend, and my confidant. It feels fantastic to take care of her and have her take care of me.
