It is Wednesday night and I am pretty trashed. My Vickie has been keeping me so busy now that I am well. We start off at 4:45 am and go till we both drop at 10 pm.
Starting off the day, we get our friends all settled in to the day care after feeding our overnight guest.
James Dean and his Foster Brother Rocky
Annie and her new friend Murphy
and of course the infamous pair Carly and Zoey.
At 10 we were off to the Hospital to visit the patients. And today was such fun cause I met this little teeny 2 year old girl who was thrilled to see me. There she was this little itty bitty thing sitting in the hospital bed with tubes here and there and a sad little face. When she saw me, her beautiful face lit up like a candle and she called for me to come up and visit her.
Of course I only have to be asked once. After Goose's Mom Michelle fixed the bed with a clean sheet and my Vickie cleaned my paws with a sanitizer, Up I went. I layed right next to her with my head in her lap and she started petting me on my ears, then my eyes, my nose and finally a gentle caress on my head.
After a while she was so happy that she wanted to hug me and that really felt good. It felt so wonderful to have those sweet little arms reach around my neck (she was so tiny that they didn't go all around my neck) then she kissed me on the forehead. WONDERFUL
Later on during our visit she crawled up on my back and sat there excitedly bouncing up and down. (My Vickie had her hand between the little girl and me so that there wasn't a lot of pressure on my stomach. You know, the ball thing.)
Anyway, she was the highlight of my day.....I THOUGHT.
After our visits at the hospital, we had been invited to a school where a group of children had been doing a lot of reserach on Therapy Dogs and they wanted to meet a real life one. So Me, Murphy, My Vickie, Paulette and Michelle went.
They asked us all a lot of questions and we had a great time answering them, showing them how we do stuff and then just letting them sit and pet us.
I showed them how I lay my head in your lap.
Or how I lay beside you when you are feeling sad.
It was a great great time.
Then we came back to work where My Friend Erianne was waiting to take me on a walk while My Vickie and Judy finished up the jobs at the kennel. Pretty cool, I get to go walking and she stays around and scoops, waters, cleans and feeds my friends.
Now it is 8:30 and I am already getting ready for bed, while My Vickie finishes up the blog. By 10 pm, we will both be fast fast asleep ready to start all over again.
Have a great day my friends.
