I travel thousands of miles throughout the intermountain west for my career as a health screener. I was in need of a travel companion to help fight the loneliness of the remote, the tiredness of the long miles, and the fear of those unknown desolate towns that I have never been to before. I found the solution, a blond-haired, brown-eyed beauty. The sweetest golden Labrador retriever, a true gift from God! Her name means “comfort,” and true she was to her name. Follow me on this journey as the joys and the sorrows played out in this adventure when my soul was truly comforted.
