Arrival Story:
Four months after the death of Blou, my new friend was looking at border collie rescue sites with absolutely no intention of acquiring another dog. When he found me he knew immediately that we needed each other. He had trouble naming me because he couldn't think of a name he liked. He woke up in the middle of the first night I was with him and saw some pictures of Blou and said to himself. Thank You Blou, and that's where I got my name. TYB.

Now I'm Official

For the past three years, I've been visiting friends in nursing homes. Each time that I make a visit, it seems that most of the residents want to pet me or say hello, but I've been limiting my visits to an individual or two whom my dad has known. A while back I took the test and qualified as a certified therapy dog and have become an associate of Therapy Dogs International. When I go to a nursing home or hospital now, I visit everyone who wants to say hello. I hope the residents of the home look forward to my visits as much as I do. You can learn more about therapy dogs on line at Therapy Dogs International.org

In my last post I said that I was preparing for the therapy dog evaluation. Well, as they say, "The best laid plans..."
It didn't happen then, but I continued to make my visits as an unofficial therapy dog. I've been visiting schools, nursing homes, and hospitals and have enjoyed doing it. Now, I'm happy to announce that I did go for evaluation and passed.
I now have my "credentials" and can continue visiting my familiar institutions and hope to become busier going to new places to brighten the day for a lot of people who need
some brightening.

 

Upcoming evaluation

I've been visiting hospitals and nursing homes for quite a while and have really enjoyed doing so.
I think seeing me in the hospital has brought a smile to a lot of faces that really don't feel like smiling and haven't for a while. I've been practicing for several weeks to be evaluated as a therapy dog so that I can be official. There are a few places that won't let dogs visit unless they have a Therapy Dog Certificate. I'm hoping to have mine by Christmas.
