Legacy of Love: A Best Friend
Posted on 10/09/2013
This is Cindy Leonard and her Great Dane, Brutis. Cindy was one of our first Legacy of Love participants photographed over the winter. Cindy says Brutis (with an i not a u) has been her strength through many challenges. Cindy calls herself the last survivor in her family, after losing her mom to breast cancer, losing her 21-year-old son in a car accident, and losing her 28-year-old daughter to what Cindy views as a broken heart after so much family hardship.
Brutis even goes with Cindy for her own cancer appointments; she says everyone knows her and her Great Dane. She described what she calls her spirit and spunk, and her desire to make the people around her smile.
