Hero Dog Awards - Princess Buttercup Jay

Princess Buttercup Jay

Lapeer, Michigan

Buttercup was apart of my veterinary technician program and all it took was locking eyes and a tail wag for it to be said and done. She had some issues and so did I. We worked hard together to help get over both of our fears and anxiety. Without buttercup I don’t know where I would be today because soon after receiving her I lost my grandfather, grandmother, leopard gecko, and childhood dog. I was going through a lot of grief but no matter what she always would make sure I was ok. If it wasn’t for her I would not have thought twice about agility. We started because of her anxiety to help her gain confidence. It has been a night and day transition after working with her. Her favorite obstacle has to be the weaves. We now go to trials where we both have made tons of friends and where buttercup strives off of the crowd and the applause. No amount of words could ever explain how proud and honored I am to call buttercup my dog.
