While Jim was at the Ottawa Heart Institute, Charlie (the amazing rescue-dog) cried at the window waiting for him to come home. Every day. When Jim was given a small reprieve to come home for the weekend (a miracle by itself), Charlie seemed to know and waited by the door for Jim’s arrival. Their reunion was joyous – for Jim and Charlie.
Charlie has been Jim’s constant companion during his illness. Another constant companion has been the worry and the wait. While Charlie seems to want to absorb anything that makes Jim anxious, the wonder-dog can’t end the waiting. But you can.
Jim needs a new heart. Please, do your part and sign up to be a donor today.
