Dexter, a.k.a. "The Bug", recently applied to become a Therapy Dog. He went through the testing process and he passed!! The Bug is a bit of a goof, but apparently the evaluators possess a strong sense of humor and really appreciated his personality. In the process, he also earned his CGC certificate from the AKC. Too many acronyms for ya? Well that means he got his Canine Good Citizen certificate from the American Kennel Club. Technically, it means he behaves in public better than most adults and some children. Doesn't he look proud?
The Bug and I are very happy to be a part of a new therapy program, Paws of Love, here in our local area. It is a Pathways to Hope program. If you are one of my regular readers you will recognize that from our humanitarian page where I introduced you to Sister Pauline Quinn. She is the one who started Pathways to Hope.
So far we have met some amazing new friends, both furry and not so furry. We are looking forward to visiting people in nursing homes, schools, libraries and anywhere else they would appreciate a little companionship and quality time with us and our new friends at Paws of Love.
