Today was a ridiculously busy day for me. Betweeen getting items I thought I had months to retrieve from my old office to swapping out stenciled wheelchairs out for non-stenciled ones, to handling additional verbiage to my new job description? I had the absolute honor of meeting Micky, one of our therapy dogs and his owner this afternoon.
Now, y’all know I am a serious dog-person, right? (I am owned by six papillons and a rescue dog.)
I was in the process of swapping out marked versus un-marked chairs on multiple floors. While I was dropping a chair off on the 3rd floor, I had the privilege of meeting Micky and his owner. Micky is a Labradoodle therapy dog at our hospital.
All of these dogs are AMAZING! I’ve encountered most of them, and today I met Micky. His owner/trainer and I had a good conversation, from one dog owner/lover to another.
The picture above is not Micky, but a Googled image of a doggie that looked the just like him.
I was able to have what I refer to as “puppy therapy” with him. I know my blood pressure was decreased by just a little bit of puppy-love.
I look forward everyday to seven wagging butts when I come home, so if I have a spare moment to spend with our therapy dogs? I will take it on a New York minute!
i absolutely appreciate these volunteers that come to our facility and not only share their time, but their fur kids with us, as well!
I am in awe of not only their dedication to their fur-babies’ behavior, but their willingness to share their fur-babies with all of us!
God bless all of the therapy dog owners and trainers! We really do appreciate all of you! ❤
Until next time….
