So, congrats to me.....I passed my Delta Test and now I can go into the hospitals with the small children and love on them by their beds.
As a search and rescue dog I have been going into retirement homes and schools and churches for two and half years now as a therapy dog but now.....NOW....I am quailified to do even more.
Since my experience last week with the little ones at Camp Hobe, My Vickie has seen what she calls "an understanding quality" in me. She says that I have a special knack for small children who hurt both in their bodies and their minds.
Well.....I already knew that, and now My Vickie knows too. Yeah..... I can't wait to go on new adventures with the Delta Society.
So as a reward, My Vickie called De and she brought Annie and we went for a walk down by the river together. It is still flooding down there but we were able to find some ways to get into my lake where my goal was to teach Annie How To Swim.
This is our road, well was our road. Now it is a new route for the river.
This was the side of our road....and the walking path along the river.....Now it is the river.
Well, it took a while but I finally got my Annie to SWIM and I think she really enjoys it. There was a time or two that My Vickie and De were about to go out and get her cause she tends to panic a bit and splashes instead of swims, but once she got the idea......You couldn't keep her out of the water.
We swam and chased sticks, brought them to shore, shook all over My Vickie and De, then swam some more. It was great........
At the end of our time together, we just sat and enjoyed the peace and quit of our lake. The cotton wood trees had dropped cotton all over the part by the bridge and it looked like we were living in both winter and summer. what a wonderful way to end the week.
Hope all is well for you
