Arrival Story: Sophie was going to doggie daycare one day and the owner had 2 miniature schnauzers for sale. That afternoon we brought Harley D home with us and the rest is history. He loves to be the center of attention and the faces he makes are unbelievable. He is a certified Therapy Dog and he is amazing to watch him with patients, family, staff and students. He is a very loving boy.

HD was recently awarded his AKC Distinguished Therapy Dog award with over 400 hundred visits. He currently visits St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, OK.
Wow, I can hardly believe that today I turned ten years old! Mom says I still have a feisty swing in my step and I still love to make my therapy dog visits at the hospital. Mom got me a Birthday cake decorated with little dog bones around the sides and Sophie Claire and I celebrated this afternoon. I want to thank all my pals that sent me rosettes cause they made me so happy! Mom says we are all getting old but we are gonna hang in there. BOL!
Amazing Gracie and the Pondarosa pack.

Again, thanks so much pals cause all of you mean the world to me and my family. Without Dogster/Catster we never would have met!
Well yesterday I made my trip to the hospital to visit the patients. Mom and I waited at the front door and the nurse came wheeling a patient to meet us. Mom asked the patient if he wanted me in his lap and he smiled and nodded
yes. So mom put me up in his lap and off we went! As I rode down the halls and went in the elevator everyone was smiling and pointing at us. I have to tell you that I have been visiting him for about 6 weeks and at first he wasn't too interested in me but now, I think he gets really excited when I visit! He smiles really big but he can't talk and he holds me and pets me as we ride. We took the patient to his room and then we were off to see more patients. I had a really good day. I got to get in 6 patients beds and snuggle with them and then I got to snuggle with a man in his recliner and I made myself right at home and he laughed at me as he petted me and told me all about his dogs waiting for him at home. I have a special boy I visit and mom lifted me onto his bed and he wanted pics of me for his family. He has been in the hospital a long time and guess what? He gets to go home next week! I sure am going to miss seeing him but he has lots of pictures of us together and he says he won't ever forget me! How cool is that? Well mom said I was getting tired so we said goodbye to the nurses and I slept all the way home. I love my job!
