Arrival Story: On November 14, 2003, when Lady was almost 3 years old, I bought her from a couple who put an advertisement in the newspaper. They wanted to place her in a home where she could have more attention. When she first came up to us, you could tell she was very affectionate. She ran up to us with her whole body wiggling and practically bouncing around with excitement. We discovered later that she was a bit timid of certain noises, and sudden movement from strangers, probably just because she hadn't had a whole lot of experience with different situations. She's a therapy dog now, and is the best dog I could hope for.
Bio: Lady is a Canine Good Citizen and a Therapy Dog (registered with Therapy Dogs International). Her therapy dog title is TDIRVA (Therapy Dogs International Remarkable Volunteer Achievment). She passed her Therapy Dog and Canine Good Citizen test on June 27, 2006. She loves to go on therapy dog visits. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~
When I saw Lady for the first time, one of the first things I noticed was her dark color. Because she is so dark, people will often assume that she is an Irish Setter. Lady doesn't have any papers, but the previous owners told us that her father (named "Sampson") did have papers, and although her mother ("Sassy Girl") didn't, she was purebred too.
Lady loves to go on walks! She also just loves to be with people.
Lady's birthday is December 30, 2000.
Well everyone, it's been quite a while since I wrote an entry.
This year I've been continuing to go places and visit people as a therapy dog. I went to the vet last month, and so far I am healthy with no problems. My owner is so grateful for that! I will be turning eight years old this month.
I hope everyone has a wonderful stress-less December, and a blessed Christmas!
Merry Christmas everyone!
This is what you have to do. Listen up because it’s different than usual. (think 5/5/5)
You have to write a letter to Santa Paws with 5 requests in your diary.
Then you give whoever tagged you 5 bones or treats.
Then tag 5 more cats or dogs.
Dear Santa Paws: This is what I'd like for Christmas:
1. For all my Dogster friends to be healthy and happy
2. For all the dogs without loving homes to be cared for and protected.
3. For Sissy's family to all be well. Sissy's mommy, Jazzi, and Sissy herself.
4. For Lady to stay healthy.
5. For Dogster HQ to know how much we appreciate their hard work.
