This is Zoe. Her and her mom do therapy visits in nursing homes, prisons, hospitals, suicide prevention workshops, a grief workshop weekend for kids who had lost a parent or a sibling, school for kids who need additional services to be successful in school, etc.
At one suicide prevention workshop, Zoe zeroed in on a young man and stayed with him the entire night one time knowing he needed her.
At the grief workshop for kids, several there were really drawn to Zoe. Zoe is so sweet and patient just letting them cry on her while holding her. At one grief camp experience, the kids had to make secret handshakes with their big buddy ( mentor). One little girl made one up with Zoe (a handshake and a hug). She came over to Zoe every time the group had to give their buddy the secret handshake. Her mom was so glad Zoe knew how to shake!
Since Covid, they haven’t been able to go on therapy visits in person/on-site (vs just being outside through a window) and as we know and are seeing, it is not the same.
This is Zoe’s perspective on masks, not seeing a person’s smile nor being able to go do therapy sessions in person to help others. She’s so dedicated to helping others and gets so much back from it herself (as does her mom), it’s made her very sad.
Please read what she had to say. I found it so deeply loving and profound from a beautiful soul called Zoe.
[NOTE: This is so cool! I asked Zoe’s mom to tell her verbally that I wrote about her and her devotion to helping people and her mom responded with this!]

Wow! That it is so nice! I read it to Zoe who kept her head on my knee and wagging her tail. It was a hit!
