Today, we said goodbye to a dog that is the reason why Dogs Deciphered exists. Tori was born in 2005, and was by my side for just over 14 years. She was one of the most challenging dogs I’ve ever owned, and helping her set me on a path to help other people with their dogs. Her presence in this world was large, even though her body was small. She is the reason that I will always have empathy for people who have difficult dogs. Her exit from the world will make all of our lives a little bit quieter, and a little less complicated, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. She was a friend and partner, and her memory will live on forever.
