In November of 2013 Rocky, my mixed lab-ridgeback rescue from the SPCA of Anne Arundel County in Annapolis Maryland, passed away unexpectedly. The void created by the loss of my 11 year old faithful companion did not remain empty for long. I went to a volunteer orientation event in late December at the Humane Society Sarasota County ("HSSC"); after which I became a volunteer dog walker at the shelter. The day after Christmas, HSSC asked me if I would foster a frightened and scared young hound mix named Jackson. I immediately said yes. The first few weeks fostering Jackson were rough. It seemed that Jackson was frightened of everything, jumping and running and hiding from almost every strange noise in the house, from the ice maker dumping ice to the microwave beeping. After a few long an...
