I know, I've rambled long enough. None of that is what you came here to read! So without further adieu, I'm so very proud to announce that Nugget's unofficial therapy dog visit was a smashing success! He was a huge hit with the residents of the nursing home and B received dozens of compliments on how well behaved and how handsome he is. I do believe my eyes began to well with tears when B called to tell me how great the visit went. I'm such a proud momma! Nugget only had to be corrected once for a small bark he dared to let out, but I am sure he was just saying "Hello" to all his new friends. (DUH!) I neglected to foresee that tennis balls on walkers might pose a slight conflict of interest for the Nugg. B reports that Nugget did spot some on the walker of a lady across the room and he carefully began to belly-crawl towards her. So funny!
In my excitement, I rushed to email one of the Charlotte tester/observers from Therapy Dogs, Inc. to begin the process of his test and observations. We've yet to get anything scheduled, but it looks like we'll be moving along pretty quickly. I am so excited and I simply could not be more proud!
*Pardon the poor quality of the pics - B took them on his Blackberry*
Nugget absolutely LOVED the attention!
He's relaxing and plotting his next move toward those tennis balls across the room!
