Wagging Tales: Kathy Hensel Porter

By Deborah Taylor-French on Dog Leader Mysteries

Dogs show us dozens of tail wags. Some go slow, others fast, dogs can swing softly and thump the floor in a running tempo.

For my friend Kathy Hensel Porter, dogs must do their happy dance each time they set eyes on her. Why? Because Kathy respects, knows, understands, and loves dogs.

Kathy Hensel Porter

As Volunteer Director for the local chapter of a Greyhound Pets of America (GPA) organization, Kathy served on the board of directors from 1992-1997.

Kathy blogs at Healing Rescue Dogs.

Her blog tagline?

“You can change your life (with some help from your dog).”

She confesses on her blog Healing Rescue Dogs,

“…for 7 years, I lived head-over-heels, a personal 24/7 dog rescue experience.”

Exploring the relationship between people and dogs, I write about this powerful and emotional connection on Healing Rescue Dogs because I believe that dogs are natural teachers. All we have to do is actively listen to them.

  1. This is unexpected and lovely. Thank you so much for your kind endorsement and for your friendship.
