In the first instalment of Pet Stories, Larnie shares how a handsome GSD named Hank came into her life.
Words by Larnie Waring
Hank was born in Heathcote (Victoria), one of TEN pups and was chosen via video call 21 hours after his human mum became aware of his existence. My partner had agreed to give our grumpy Westie a brother, so time was of the essence! I was stuck at home, debilitated by anxiety. Hank saved my life. He gave me courage to live life again. I haven't looked back, except when I'm play running from this beautiful boy. He's my soul dog, and he gives me courage wherever I go now, close to my heart, always, solidified by his nose print.
