For a dog named Moxie, she has a very important job that she takes very seriously. She works every day to comfort her mom and make her life a little easier. Her owner is a woman named Katie Harris and since the two met, they have spent every moment together. Moxie even goes with her mom to work each day and then is next to her all the time when they return home each evening. Katie says Moxie helps her every day and has been such a blessing in her life. In the past, bending over to pick up something she dropped would cause Katie to hurt herself from a dislocation or even pass out from blood pressure problems. Now, Moxie helps her pick up anything she drops on the floor and even grabs her shoes or clothes and is there to provide help with whatever she needs.
Katie has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which is a connective tissue disorder. Recently, she underwent surgery to help with her symptoms. Sadly, that meant her beloved Moxie had to stay at home while Katie stayed in the hospital for an extended period of time. Katie knew it would be difficult for both she and Moxie to be apart, but she had no idea how Moxie would react. After they were apart for 12 days, both Moxie and Katie missed one another dearly. So, thanks to the amazing technology of video calls, Katie called to say hello to Moxie one day.
As soon as Moxie heard her mom’s voice, she began licking the phone screen and pawing at the phone to get closer to her mom. Just one day later, the two were finally reunited and the dog was so happy to see her mom she jumped into her lap for kisses. It’s truly a wonderful bond between these two!
