Beth Schmitz, 82, a retired substitute teacher who also worked at K-Mart and in real estate and the mother of five children, talks about her best friend Digger, a 9-year-old rat terrier. About four years ago after Schmitz lost her Jack Russell terrier, she decided to take some blankets to the Green County Humane Society to donate. Every time she would walk by Digger, the dog would jump up and bark, so Schmitz decided to bring her home.
