Traveling Therapist

During a recent trip to Southern Arkansas I called one of the nursing homes to see if they would be interested in a visit from a therapy dog. I got the impression that they had never had a visit from a therapy dog before. After asking me a few questions they said we could come. Since they didn't ask what kind of dog I was bringing I decided to just let that "little" bit of information be a surprise.

When we walked in the building there was a collective gasp from the nursing home staff and then a mad rush to see who would get to pet Louie first. Soon he had quite an adoring crowd around him and we heard the usual comments: "Wow he's so big!" "Did you see that? She just moved her finger and he sat down." "How much does he eat?" "He is so beautiful." Louie soaked up all the attention and passed out a few kisses to his latest fan club.

The puparazzi continues to follow us everywhere we go.

This nice lady fell in love with Louie...she just couldn't get enough of him.

I don't blame her :) Almost everyone loves this sweet teddy bear Newf.

Louie is so cute. My wife and I totally adore Louie and Katie. We check your blog every week. Louie enjoys all the attention. Love it when he kneels like a tortoise.
