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.

My pleasure! (I just love volunteering for the "shouting match" segment of these tests LOL)
Seriously, it was great seeing another Pet Partner evaluation and I really do enjoy being a part of such a wonderful enriching "thing" to do with pets... Congrats to you and Trixie; I am sure she will be a big hit like her daughter Jam at the residence you will visit!!
