Lexi blew my mind...
As most of you know, Lexi is a certified Therapy dog and goes on a regular basis to Nursing homes, and visits with the patients and as well as the altzheimer wing. She is wonderful with the elderly.
But...yesterday we started a new therapy program where she went into a Kindergarten class - to read with the children. She was a perfect angel and was so happy to be with all the kids. They asked a million questions, and all wanted to be with her. There was one girl who had been bitten by a dog and was very afraid of all dogs. I promised to keep Lexi far from her so she would be comfortable. Well.... within 10 minutes, the girl made her way over and pet Lexi on the back. When we went into the circle to read, Lexi went straight for HER!! And the little girl was ok since Lexi was so gentle about it. AT the end of the class, we have a picture of this little girl hugging Lexi!!!! I was just so proud of her!!
The kids all drew pictures of Lexi in their journals! It was such a great day.
That was the am class - and next week we get to go and meet the afternoon class - I cannot wait!!
Please share with us if your therapy dog, does wonderful things, to make people happy!!!..
