Yesterday was my 12th birthday! I celebrated with some friends on Zoom. They even sent me virtual dog biscuits! I’ve been doing very well on your regimen. I even take on my six-year-old brother every now and then in a little tussling. I keep my walks short, but I still do the stairs. I must admit, though, that my favorite place is the couch. Can you believe it’s been 5 years since you started helping me?! Thank you!


Xena celebrated her second birthday this February 🙂 Since our last email, Xena has come out of her shell a bit more. She started laying on her side on the floor in September; she never used to do that before! She continues to be a “lap cat” in certain places in our home… kitchen chair, couch, or toilet lol. There are still certain noises that she will startle with but I am working on desensitizing her to as many as I can, using clicker training. She seems to be more comfortable around us and even began sleeping on the bed with us another first! I bought her a snuggler bed a few weeks ago and she LOVES it! Food anxiety has lessened a little bit since I started feeding 3 times a day a few weeks back. I added canned pumpkin about 2 months ago… which she LOVES… and recently discovered she likes peas (she stole some out of the kitchen sink lol). All in all, Xena has progressed nicely since starting the hemp on May 19, 2020.


Rusty is our dear family member who is a Shepherd mix and now age 16. Always so active and youthful, we watched with sadness as he had shown his age decline in the past year, which slowed him down and made his quality of life decline. Not willing to throw in the towel, we tried Canna Companion for him. I want to state that we were serious skeptics, and really thought it was a long shot that this would have any positive effect for Rusty. Well, within 2 days of starting Canna Companion, we honestly could not believe our eyes…Rusty was looking good. Now, months later, Rusty is moving around, even trots around the yard, and eats like a horse. If this is a coincidence, then it is the greatest one in history. This former skeptic has to gladly and joyfully say that Canna Companion has given our friend a new lease and serious good quality of life in his “overtime” years. Thank you, Canna Companion, for what can only be termed a miracle for our Rusty. We are happy to put up with his “second childhood,” as, on an almost nightly basis, he starts playing with us at what should be bedtime, and proudly parades around the house with one stuffed animal after another in his mouth. 🙂
