Patrick Major is our special guest today and he shares an incredible story. For much of his life, he suffered from kidney failure and disability from CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth) Disease. When Patrick was at a low point, depressed and considering suicide, that’s when he and his girlfriend discovered the healing power from a dachshund named Sammy Davis.
Patrick and Sammy Davis were featured on an Animal Planet show called Saved, and Sammy Davis has won Wiener Dog races and is an accomplished disc dog. Patrick can be found through “Meet Sammy Davis.” Two more dogs have joined the family - Karma, an Australian Shepherd, and Marley, a small dog mix, and they are both disc dogs.
