I've been going through training for a few weeks now to be a therapy dog. I have my cute vest that I wear that identifies me as a therapy dog when I go out to nursing homes. I am now doing "on the job" training and yesterday I made my first visit to a nursing home! It went so well. I visited the patients and got so much attention and petting. What pup wouldn't love that? The patients sure enjoyed it and it really brightened up their day. Many of the patients had to leave their dogs behind when they were placed in the nursing home. It made them happy to have a dog to pet again. I'll be making visits every other week. Can't wait to go back and visit everybody.
