I was in the same boat. My grandmother passed away about 8 months ago. She had been in a nursing home before she passed away and they would let me bring Brady with when I came to see her. He was just a puppy then. Everyone there loved him! It is really funny how they know when to behave sometimes. Brady would walk up to wheelchairs and patiently wait for someone to tell him to put two paws up so they could pet him. My grandmother was bedridden at the end and he would snuggle right in next to her (he never sat still any other time). She would let go of my hand and reach over and pet him. After she passed away, I kept saying I was going to look into him becoming a therapy dog since he loved visiting her and the other people there so much. Unfortunatly, I am not the best at training so I am not sure I could get so far as to pass the CGC test.
