Madis, I certainly recommend the therapy dog program for you and your "baby". If you want pointers/suggestions on getting to that point.....send me an email [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Too all others thank you for your kind words.
An added note: Last week I made a trip to a local nursing home....without Maggie....and with another certified couple and their pet partner, just to get an idea as what to expect, before I took her (Maggie) today. One room contained a man and his wife, both in need of the nursing facilities....when the man saw the couples dog, he began crying....my heart just sank to the bottom of my stomach. I was sold on the program.
