Penny's TDI paperwork came in the mail yesterday. She has an official ID card:



And a big Yellow ID tag that says "I'm a therapy dog". She wears it well.

We're offically certified to do Therapy visits now! We'll be doing a reading program at the Shaler Library once a month (set up by the WPHS) and going to my Mom's school in the Spring! Yippeee!

Hey Boo! Penny went through a CGC/TDI prep class at our local humane society. A lot of obedience clubs offer classes too & testing. Here are the testing requirements:

Penny is really good with kids so we'll be doing some bite prevention stuff at preschools (we did one at the Children's Museum last month) and she's going to be part of the reading program at a local library.

ooohh, I'm jealous...I want to be a therapy dog but I just can't control myself when I see somebody new...I have to give them a full-body slam, which I think pretty much disqualifies me...maybe when I'm older! Keep us updated on your therapy work!
