Jazz the Wonder Dog was the one who heard my cries and answered by nudging her head under my hand. Jazz is a gift who teaches me to find joy in scattered moments of my day.
Our 2018 calving season started two days before Christmas. The early start was not because the bulls got out before the June 1 turnout date. Or because we miscalculated our insemination schedule. First calf heifer No. 609 went into labor about noon on the 23rd. I walked her down to a calving shed.

For people with disabilities and even medical conditions, assistant dogs can be fantastic help, not to mention they provide great companionship and an invaluable sense of security.
