Trixie - our Newest Therapy Dog!!!
I am very proud to announce that Trixie is our newest Pet Partners Therapy Dog! With Jam out on maternity leave and Savi away for field training, we needed to find a Weim to fill their shoes and it was Trixie. The group home for developmentally disabled adults has missed our visits and I'm sure will be thrilled to have us back.
Thanks to our wonderful evaluator, Anita Sacks, who organized and administered the Pet Partners, formally Delta Society, Therapy Dog evaluation in New York City. Trixie adored Anita!
Even with torrential rains and a tornado nearby, we made it safely into the city and were able to get the evaluation done, and make it out to the Somerset Hills Kennel Club show to purchase dog food and puppy toys for Jam's litter!
It takes a group of trained volunteers to assist with making the evaluation a success and our fabulous friend, KellyAnn, joined us for the day to help. The other volunteers were terrific and thanks go out to them for donating their time.
