Oh boy, where to start! Jax has helped me not only in physical ways, but mentally and emotionally. While being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, it can be hard to do the simplest of things, like getting up in the morning or taking a shower. Jax always know when he needs to get me up and going (he also pees at the break of dawn so that’s helps me get out of bed too.)
Jax has helped me grow a community of friends at the dog park and has helped me realize that anxiety isn’t going to hold me back in life anymore. When I feel like it’s hard to breathe, he is right there reminding me of life’s gifts.

Looking at all he’s done, he has made me grow into a kinder, more patient individual. While he takes everyday in as a blessing, so will I. It almost makes me wonder…do we learn more from our pets, or do they learn more from us?
