Arrival Story:
I wanted a chocolate lab, a co-worker put me in touch with a local breeder who had 10 chocolate puppies. I brought her home when she was 8 weeks old.

Hershey traveled everywhere with me, I purchased a motorhome just so she could travel with us. She swam in the Pacific, Atlantic, Lake Superior, Lake Michigan and the Gulf of Mexico. She should sit by the motorhome until we let her in just so she wouldn't get left behind. She loved to chase squirrels, got one once! She loved all people and all animals, she taught me allot about life. Hershey became a Pet Therapy Dog in 1995 on a local level. In 1998 she passed her tests to become a member of the Therapy Dog Internation organization. She visited local nursing home, assisted living centers and the local hospital, Kent General Hospital in Dover, DE. A week after her passing, she was award the DVMA Pet Hero of the Year Award for her volunteering in these centers. The ceremony was held on Aug. 31, 2004.
