Flyin' High With Amy
Canine Zone|August/September 2021
This is a story of love, courage, joy, resilience and perseverance
Susan Henderson

The definition of “fly” means striving to reach whatever heights are necessary to succeed in life, no matter the obstacles faced.

This is a journey of love, courage, joy, resilience, and perseverance between a dog and a young girl. The story began when the seven-year-old Amy developed a passion for training dogs, inspired by accompanying her mom, Julie, to agility classes. Amy’s love for dog training was sparked when asked to help train a poodle in the class. Having desperately wanted a dog of her own, Amy pleaded with her mom. But her mother was steadfast in her insistence that animals are not animated children’s toys and explained to Amy that huge responsibility and commitment are prerequisites to taking on the duty of caring properly for another sentient being. When Amy was able to show that she could make a responsible guardian, the matter would be reconsidered.
