In our last two blog posts, The Power of Animals and The Power of Animals, Part 2, we talked about the relationships between animals and humans. This week we’re talking about another incredible animal, this one a dog named Shep.

I’m having a very busy week, as I’m away from home. So actually we’re just revisiting Shep in an article we wrote a few years ago, Forever Faithful.

I know some of you have read the article before, and some have not. Either way, I think you’ll love revisiting, or visiting for the first time, Shep’s story. Shep gives new meaning to the words “until death do us part.”
