As some of you know I’ve wanted to be a Therapy Dog for as long as I can remember. I love to make people smile and it would be cool to visit people who can’t get out and about so much.
Mum thought I was a little young before and then we had our hectic, fun summer, so it was kind of put to one side.
During the summer though, Mum and I met a lady and her Dog Gracie at the park and she was telling us about a local group she’s involved with that does Therapy Dog work.
Perfect! We hadn’t come across this group on the Internet so Mum was very happy to hear about a local group.
Today Mum and I are going to visit Gracie and her Mum to find out more, although I think Gracie and I are just gonna play while Mum talks details……. Tee Hee – Gracie is so much fun, we get on really well, I’ve been hoping we’d have a play date – Yay!!
I will have to be assessed by an animal behaviourist and I think Mum has to do lots of admin stuff before we can pass – Mum says she’s not bothered how long it takes and I may still be a little young (i.e. Bouncy!! ) but she just wants to know what things we should work on together……
I also have to be assessed by my vet, Mum’s made an appointment, so our big day is early in October – Woohoo!!
This is a huge step for us and we’re super excited, though Mum says I’m already an unofficial Therapy Dog and I bring smiles everyday!! Yay!
Will I make it as an official Therapy Dog? – I’ve got my paws crossed!!
