“A good dog never dies, he always stays, he walks beside you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near, his head within our hand in his old way. ” ~ Anonymous


This is a beautiful tribute made by Hannah’s mom/owner Elise Campbell. In the video she chronicles the first year from Hannah in the shelter to Hannah today. Hannah had a bunch of issues like resource guarding, dog on dog aggression, barrier frustration, and redirecting on her handler, among others.

The first time I met Elise and Hannah I told her that if she did the work, in a year, Hannah would be a different dog…Elise looked at me and said, “A year?!?”

Well, it’s been a year, Elise has worked really hard with Hannah, and the result is a dog and her mom/owner who are both different now. – Each has been changed, in a beautiful way, by the other.

Check out the video here:

It’s true, we each get the dog we need.  🙂

Elise is also a wonderful photographer, check out her work at :

    Dear Elise, and family,
    I just saw this, and my heart broke for you. I know the pain of losing a beloved 4 legged baby. If I could take away the pain this has brought you, and yours I would do so in a heartbeat. The pain may feel unbearable, but if you think of the good times it makes it a little easier. And always remember Hannah Lou lives on in your heart. She is still loving you!

    Be blessed,


  2. Awilda, I just stumbled upon your beautiful words while I was missing my Hannah Lou. Thank you so very much for taking the time to comment. ❤
