this little guy is Coco. my cohort. He works with me everyday, handling the most difficult cases with gentleness and compassion. He intuitively knows when to approach gently, when to be rambunctious , when to lay down and listen. He asks for nose rubs and cuddles when he senses that they need a little more gentleness. Animals have so much sensitivity and innate kindness that they are very helpful in the healing process.
