"For the Love of Kinsey." Kim is blind. She leads a full and active life with her loving husband Butch, a grown daughter and son-in-law, two granddaughters, her guide dog Sal, and her rescued-pet dog Benny. It was October of ’07. Kim’s first guide dog, Angus, her guide and constant companion for eleven years, was gravely ill and would have to be put down. A thousand miles away, Kinsey was completing her final month of professional guide dog training. Kinsey became Kim’s guide in December of ’07. A guide dog gives a blind person mobility, protection, companionship, and unconditional affection. It enables physical access to the world beyond the home, encouraging a full and active lifestyle. This is Kim’s story, a collection of her emails to me, in which she tells of her happy, funny, and poignant experiences with Kinsey, an extraordinary dog.

Several of the stories relate to 9/11. Tails of the Heart celebrates these dogs teams.
