Well, in March Maggie and I passed our Canine Good Citizen test (grandpa asked if that meant we could vote now....I reminded him I live in Louisiana, so anything is possible). We also passed the TDI (Therapy Dog International) portion of the test....so now we are certified to do therapy visits.
We finally visited a nursing home last weekend and everyone loved us (even if they did tell us we were a little chunky). Maggie was more interested in cleaning the floor than with visiting, but I was happy to listen anytime someone decided to reach down, scratch my ears and talk to me. We're planning to go to a bunch more. We're joining a group called Caddo Caring Canines and those dogs do a LOT of therapy dog visits.
Our next goal is to become READ certified, then we'll visit schools and libraries and let the the kids read to us -- after they've read so many books to us, we'll give them a free book. I've just got to get mom to stop procrastinating and take the durn test!!
