Dear Dogs,

Thank you for being there when we are sick, or hurt, or in trouble.
Thank you for licks and hugs when we feel down, or just need to smile.
Thank you for all that you do, for always being at our sides.
This is our love letter to you!

Give thanks to every human's best friend, in this sweet and inclusive ode to dogs of all kinds - with an emphasis on service dogs - written by animal expert Maria Gianferrari and illustrated by Ishaa Lobo.
