This is just the cutest little dog in a tuxedo. Meet the therapy dog that comes to the advocacy center. I have not gotten the pleasure of working with her, however last week at our volunteer appreciation dinner I got to sit at the same table with him and her owner. I can only imagine what a soothing presence this little pup provides to the children. I got to hear plenty of stories, and see the owner's face as she talked about her journey with training a therapy dog. It is amazing all the different ways people are able to contribute to causes that mean a lot to them.
I am so happy I am included in this great group of volunteers and staff. These people really give their hearts to the children that come in every day.
Question to consider: Do you the discipline to train a therapy dog? Adam and I looked into it at one point, and decided that Sterling is a little too neurotic and we are a little too lazy. However Sterling is an excellent therapy dog for the two of us.
