Ding is a very special friend to me, not just a pet. He went to work with me everyday at a mental health care center. Ding was such a happy wonderful addition to the center,that he brought about 100% compliance and even got the residents to work out on a regular basis. Ding also wakes me when I am suffering an asthma attack in my sleep. I am on oxygen and he will lay up on my pillow,nestle down next to my neck when I am in distress and listen to my breathing. He has changed my life for the good and brings me such joy. He is my hero!
