Man's Best Friend

A Michigan prisoner who trains dogs in the PAWS program writes:

Yesterday we took Kessa to the seg yard where she could run off leash to her heart’s content, as well as use the kiddie pool. We filled it to the brim, and then laughed ourselves hoarse as she’d race around the yard, dive into the pool, and then emerge so only the very top of her head was above the water. She’s small enough to paddle in circles, dunking her head to retrieve a rubber ball we had tossed. I keep saying to myself, “And they pay me to do this? Awesome!”
