There are millions of abandoned dogs in the United States every year. On average, their fate is bleak. Either living on the streets with no home or euthanized in shelters. Reka was found abandoned in the streets of Miami when she was a puppy. My son took her in and nursed her back to health. During that same time, I suffered a massive heart attack. After my initial recovery, he drove her to Cleveland to give to me. He felt having her would force me to walk a few times a day. And he was right ...
Reka and I quickly bonded and she became my cardiac rehab partner. In early 2020 I started bringing her to the office as I did not want to keep putting her in daycare during work hours. She adapted very quickly to the office. The response from our patients has been overwhelmingly positive. Many people bring her gifts and treats.
Reka is very good with people as she is very gentle and sweet. In fact, Reka means sweetness in the Maori language. She has her certification as a support animal. She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback with a little bit of Shar-Pei. Having her with me during the day at work has been a real blessing for my practice, my patients, and myself personally.
Thank you for being such an important part of my life Reka!
