I thought it would be a good idea to get Walter certified as a therapy dog through Therapy Dogs International for two reasons: 1) He thrives on attention, so I knew it would be good for him to be in situations where he would get just that; 2) Probably most important, I feel that Walter can be an ambassador for his breed and, in the long run, help save lives.

Peaches The Wonder Pit

I fell in love with her at first sight. We normally don’t find foster homes for adult dogs, but I couldn’t resist bringing her home with me that night. She was a little nervous at first, but soon figured out that the sofa was soft, the treats were yummy, and the cat was friendly.

Millie may have been sweeter than pie with sugar, but she lacked social skills and manners. I knew that as a pit bull mom, as a young college adult about to embark on my own and as a dog guardian in general…

I had no intentions of getting another dog, as we already have three, but something just drew me to him. Thank God it did. Having just lost my mother, Gus was the best therapy for me.

A Star is Born

To write about my adventures is fun, but to write about myself and how I help others is kind of embarrassing. This I can tell you…I was first trained and tested to become a TDI therapy dog. Then as my Dad’s needs changed, I went back to school and and graduated from Puppy Love Caring Canines School for service dogs.
