After Zaza, our 4 pound delicious Maltese, who was 9 years old at the time, came through her operation on her spine at the Animal Medical Hospital in New York, she began therapy there. When it was time for us to go back to our winter home in Florida, we told them there that we would not go back to Florida unless they could find a physical therapist in Florida, near our residence, for Zaza. After researching, they discovered that Shari Sprague was close to our home in Naples and what was really propitious was that she trained the therapist at the Animal Medical Hospital. Well they were so terrific that we felt if Shari was as good as they were Zaza was in good hands.
Well we are her to say that Shari was not as good, she was so much better. She was their teacher after all and her knowledge, her compassion, her patience and her love for what she was doing translated into Zaza, who could not take more than a few steps when she got to Shari, to walking the equivalent of a New York City block.
Shari gave us back our little girl and for that we will be eternally grateful.
