Well last night mom picks me up and sits me in the sink for a bath! I say to her, momma, I don't get a bath until Sunday night! She smiles and as she soaps me up she tells me a story. Harley, tomorrow you are going to a special celebration for some children who have profound disabilities. The school decided to have a special day to celebrate what wonderful and special children they are. So, we gets up real early and mom gets my stuff together, brushes me, sprays me with stinky stuff and puts my vest on. It seems we were in the car a day or a week or something like that and then finally we were there. Three of my other therapy dog buddies came too and we were taken into the classroom to meet the kids. They all have multiple disabilities so mom would hold me or I could put my paws on the knees cause they couldn't see very well and she would take their hands and then they could feel my fur. There were all kinds of wheelchairs and walkers and they had the gym and 3 classrooms set up so the kids could do different activities. I went in the gym and there was this little toot on the floor and I went right up to him and gave him a good ol' sniff and he got to laughing and he made funny sounds. At first it kind of scared me but mom kept telling me, its OK Harley and you know what? It was! I would sniff him and then he would pet me and laugh. Later on they had him in a little walker and he didn't want to walk but when he saw me, he started using his walker. It was a good morning for everyone and everyfurry. The pups made the little ones smile and they would stretch their little arms out to pet all of us. I got a Certificate and a bag of dog cookies too! The teachers want to have us back on a regular basis as they could see what a difference Animal Assisted Therapy can do. Well, I slept all the way home and mom said she was real proud of me today and you know, I was real proud of me too!

Thanks pals! This was really a very special day for my mom and me. I wasn't too sure about the balloons and that clown that kept sqeeking a big horn in his pocket. BOL. I finally let the clown pet me and kinda got use to all the balloons the kids were waving around.
