It’s the people you meet that slowly work their way into your heart, and then there are the dogs who would look at you and look to you with no judgment in their eyes. So, I ask myself what does Prison PAALS mean to me? The first word that comes to mind is REDEMPTION!!I think about the life lessons that I have learned just by being in this program and it is a confirmation to myself that as a person I am growing. This program has done for me what I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own and that is become a productive member of a team through positive actions. Who would have thought that by training dogs, that would become the core foundation of retraining the way I think?
