Boston Strong

I thought it would be appropriate today to post the picture of Hathaway at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. It took us until fall to make our pilgrimage to Boylston Street and pay our respects. (Of course, it turns out that after dragging him on the train and around Boston for 3 or 4 hours, he was sick with an abscess growing in his head.)

Most days, Hathaway wears a Boston Strong collar, and it was the Marathon tragedy that finally spurred us to actually earn, rather than just talk about earning, our therapy dog certification. In the grand scheme of it all, that's probably a little thing. But for the people we visit, and for us, it's a big deal to even make a little bit of a difference.
