Kalispell Montana. Approximately two years ago, my friend, Dr. Annie Bukacek, purchased a dog for protection, naming her Zena. It soon became apparent that Zena was a different kind of dog. For whatever reason, she never learned her name, but she knew when we were talking about her. She was smart, silly and very social.
Zena loved to make friends with the people who came to Annie’s office. Sometimes they brought her treats. She made friends at the local Starbucks, meaning more treats. She reached out to a lonely woman at the bank, making the woman’s day.
