In these difficult and often trying times, there are glimpses of unmistakable beauty.
It’s difficult to describe what it feels like when you witness your dog bringing out the best in people.
Shiloh and I went on our first visit to a skilled nursing facility we were considering visiting on a regular basis.
Hope and I had a bittersweet pet therapy visit this morning. It was our second visit to the Health and Rehab Center.
Bailey is a Love on a Leash therapy dog. When I saw the look on Bailey’s face in this picture, it made me tear up.
The faces that lit up when they saw Herc made all the time, energy and tears worth it. We’re just starting our journey and know our work will be rewarded with infinite hugs and kisses.
Charlie (also known as Charming Charlie) came to me as a skinny, neglected 18 month old goofball puppy, in need of a lot of training, and love. I was happy to give him both.
When I got Faith, my hope was that she’d become a therapy dog. I was already doing pet therapy with my other golden retriever, Hope.
“Hope. What a great name for a therapy dog.” I often hear that when I’m out on visits with my golden retriever, Hope. I had no idea she would become a therapy dog.
Mika is our angel. We found her at a shelter and her days were numbered. She was so skinny and fearful but we could tell that she just needed some love and patience.
