I Am A Therapy Dog!

After completing a shadow visit, an evaluation, and 6 probationary visits to nursing homes and libraries, Chou Chou and I are a certified animal-assisted therapy team! Chou Chou is showing off her new ID tag.  I have a tag, too.

I was awarded our certificate tonight at the monthly meeting. I am excited about the opportunity to do this!

It's too hot to play outside during the day, so Chou Chou was running in the yard and playing with her glow ball  at night. 

Then it landed in a patch of ivy. Chou was very interested!

More Libraries, Less Fear

Chou Chou and I are working through our six trainee visits to certify as an animal-assisted therapy team. Since our first library shift, we have done 3 more. 

Children bring books to read to Chou: she never criticizes, so they gain confidence.
