Starting Therapy - Dogs that is

Saturday, Blossom and I will begin her certification for Therapy Dogs Inc. We have to do three visits to get her the coveted red heart. We will be visiting three nursing homes over two weekends. When finished we are going to join the group called CARE where we visit schools and kids read to the dogs, these are kids who are reluctant to read out loud, so the dog makes a forgiving audience. I'm looking forward to bringing her into the world of Therapy Dogs, although she's very much on the small end of he breed, only 8.5 inches and 6 lbs. I think she'll do just fine.
Paula and Blossom

I would love for Radar to get to go to some Elderly Homes for Therapy Purposes. I would like him to get some sort of certification for going there though so that he can have some specialty training to prepare him for a place like that or else he might freak out at the surroundings. Perhaps the CGC Cert.
