I'm a dog. Matt and Alicia are always telling me how I'm a "good girl." They usually say it when I listen to commands, chew toys instead of household items or their limbs, and also when I poop outside. I have a lot to be proud of, but Alicia shared with me an article about a dog named Rosie who REALLY has a lot to be proud of!
Rosie is a golden retriever who is trained as a therapy dog. Most recently, she helped a 15-year-old girl testify against her father who raped and impregnated her. The girl was scared to go up on the witness stand and even once she got there, she had a hard time. Rosie sat with her in the court room (even up on the stand!) and gave her gentle nudges to help her testify.
I provide lots of joy to everyone around me. Just looking at my cute face and seeing my cow-spotted body wriggle with excitement to meet people brings joy. But I don't know how good I'd be in the court room. Thank goodness for dogs like Rosie who make the world a better place!
To conclude, I am a good girl. Rosie is a very good girl.
Finally, because I am not just a good girl, but also cute, here is a picture of me...
