Now I'm the Only One in the Family Who is Not a Therapist

Louie decided to follow in his father and big sister's footsteps yesterday by passing his therapy dog test. Not only did he earn his Rally Novice title on Saturday he also became a certified therapy dog. I am so proud of our 14 month old baby. He is such a sweetheart; I know he will brighten the lives of many nursing home residents, Hospice patients, the kids at Easter Seals, their families and the staff at these facilities. In fact, he brought many people joy at the dog show yesterday. Adults and children flocked around him and Katie. One woman approached me and said that out of all the dogs at the show none touched her heart the way Louie did.

Here is a video of Louie taking his test. I labeled all of the different sections so that people who are interested can see what the test is all about.

Louie is great. I loved the way he reacted to the separation test. My Newf North had a similar test for his CGC and showed no anxiety. What a wonderful therapy dog Louie will be! Shirley
