Gryff's first therapy visit

Gryff and I went to a nursing home today to visit with the residents there. Gryff was a perfect gentleman and really brightened everyone's day. We are going to try and go once a week or so to visit. It was very rewarding for me and Gryff was completely exhausted after a 45 minute visit. He slept all 5 minutes on the way home.

Ivy- Aren't therapy dog visits the greatest? They do so much to brighten a lonely person's day. Congratulations to you and Gryff!

Oh that is fantastic! 45 minutes is a long time for his first visit. I'm sure it gave him great confidence.
Congratulations!
