It’s been a while since my last post and you may have wondered where I have been. I’ve been studying! The test – Therapy Dog Certification which allows me to visit schools, hospitals, nursing homes and any other place where I can bring a smile and help in healing. My studying involved following a series of commands – sit, stay, heel. I got those easily. My hardest command to learn was “leave it”. It’s so hard to leave a delicious morsel of cheese lying on the floor – to just walk away! Who could do such a thing? But, I was determined to pass this test so I bucked up and left it.
The day of test, I was clean, courteous and kind. I followed each command to a tee and my hard work paid off! I PASSED! My first visit is set for November when I will be visiting with pre-schoolers who will be learning about Good Citizen and Therapy dogs. I am excited by my new career prospects and look forward to sharing my adventures with you!
