Love Dog Gathering

The Love Dogs got together recently to celebrate each other, our animals, our work and our amazing 2016. So much is on the horizon for 2017. We also bestowed our 2016 Spirit Award to Dash for his amazing spirit through two illnesses this year and his ability to bounce back as if nothing happened.

What an extraordinary day it was with the Love Dog team. So many people had not met before so they had the opportunity to share stories from the field. We bestowed the 2016 Spirit Award to Dash, a true survivor who never lost his spirit and returned to work better than ever. Thank you everyone for making Love Dog such a respected therapy program, and such fun!

Phoenix is a hit!

Phoenix went on his first visit to a memory care facility and everyone just loved him! This memory care home has the sweetest residents and they know many of the Love Dog teams. But who knew so many of the residents had Shepherds in their past and this jogged so many memories. This gentle giant of a dog was quiet, calm and just ready for a belly rub!

Phoenix first walked around meeting new people and then settled on his blanket so his person could tell his story with everyone gathered around them. And never forget the staff in these wonderful facilities – they so enjoyed this brief break with a beautiful dog. Job well done!
