Howard, living in Rhode Island, did not find financially-feasible work with animals, but is employed and in school to be a trade journeyman, three years from possibly owning a business.

“I can honestly say that I relate everything in my life to dog training,” Howard wrote in a letter to Christy. “I just find a way to break everything in my life down to small goals and stay patient, confident and ambitious.

“Often times people that have known me now for a few months will find out one way or another that I just served time in Florida and are absolutely shocked. They really just can’t believe I could ever have been anything but the man I am today … and it feels great. It’s been amazing and freedom is limitless.”
