Thanks guys...we appreciate all you do!
Love-love-love Ribeye Renk
I love the pet therapy dogs!
Renk is just an awesome "puppy" !
I went to Zimmerman building for chemo treatment. The whole staff and doctors. Was amazing but the best part of all is when they bought the therapy dogs in and they would just let you love and pet them. Made my day even though I was hooked up to a machine. Thank you all !
I love GS dogs. A high five for these precious dogs for services to the children.You would
be surprised how the love of animals can calm a child that is scared of hospitals. Thank you for your services.'re the best. And may I say handsome too!!
Renk, you are the best!
