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!
