Thanks to EASE Animal Sanctury (more about EASE to come) I was introduced to "Tender Touch" and the marvellous work of Tender Touch practitioner Deidre Chitwood. It was truly heartwarming to read about Deidre's marvellous work with animals, and I was elated to find this amazing (above) story among the video clips on her website. I can highly recommend that you pop over and read about Tender Touch if you're not familiar with it.
This is one of those stories that makes you want to weep at the thought of the quality of patience and genuine good in caring humans. I simply L O V E this.
