    Default Proud of Anna

    I'm so proud of Anna! She took the tests at the Cavalier Gathering today and is now a Therapy Dog. We plan on taking her to Regents Hospital in St. Paul, wherever they think she can do the most good.

    The past couple years we have been taking Anna to visit my 96 year old uncle. Uncle Ed is living at home, but needs a fair amount of care and help; we bring Anna with every now and then because Ed just loves her. He has always said that he would like a dog like Anna, but he knows he can't take proper care of one any more. It's just so funny to see that grizzled old Marine Corps lifer who spent WWII in a Japanese prison camp sitting with Anna in his lap talking baby talk to her!

    Bruce!

    Congratulations Anna!!!

    Bruce your story gave me goosebumps. I love the feeling you get when you think of your little one being able to make such a difference in people's lives. I'm so proud of Anna for getting her therapy dog certificate!! This story is particularly touching to me as just last Saturday Kosmo passed his test for his Saint John's too!! I have to wait for my criminal records check to come back and then we'll be able to start visiting retirement facilities and nursing homes (whichever one my leader chooses.)

    You GO Anna!! You're going to have so much fun with her.. Congrats again bruce!!

    Hey, it was sure was great to see you there. Star will old enough to come to the next Gathering and I know she love it as much as the other Cavaliers did.

    Oh, and Great-Grandpa Lazer, one of our retired boys, is coming to visit for a few days next week and we are intending to get pictures of 4 generations.

    Congrats to Anna, Bruce & Kris! It was such a pleasure to meet Anna this weekend. Gracie was quite fond of her too! What a great picture of Anna, Star and Pixxey, too!

    WOotWOot!! Congrats Anna!

    I love the idea of a dog being good therapy... I couldn't think of anything better! I can't wait to get Cicero on the path to becoming a Therapy Dog!
