This video shows the reunion between my husband and the female inmate that raised his dog Pax. I cannot fully convey what an incredibly emotional trip this was, nor can I over-exaggerate the number of Clonazepam my husband took to deal with the event! The reunion was captured by Glenn Close and her production team and resulted in a full-length documentary. The following clip is just a snippet which was used on Oprah's website to help promote the PBB charity.
Glenn Close, from her website, www.fetchdog.com,
I have been inspired and moved by one story after another, but never as much as I am by the story of Bill Campbell and Pax … Pax was first socialized and trained by Laurie Kellogg, an inmate at the maximum security Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. So a dog, initially loved and trained by a woman who has lost her freedom, but wants to give back to society, is enabling the life of a veteran of the Iraq war who was imprisoned by his disabling injuries. The story speaks for itself.Please visit Puppies Behind Bars website for more information www.puppiesbehindbars.com
