It's Official - Toby's a Licensed Therapy Dog

Toby demonstrates his endearing Therapy Dog manners.
Quelle cutie!!!
Dream come true for me - I am now the junior member of a Therapy Dog Team! The star of course is Toby.

Toby's license and bandana arrived with a list of potential sites to visit. We have an appointment later this week at our city's hospital. This includes opportunities to visit a local assisted living facility run by the hospital. I am also looking into the chances to visit the local library. Toby LOVES children.

I'm so excited about the chance to share my beloved dog's sweetness with others. I don't know yet whether he'll prefer children, elders, or just disabled adults. Experience will tell. But as a biologist, I am confident that as a volunteer with Toby, we'll make a difference for people in their neediest times. 
 Kind of fantastic that just by being a temporary furry friend, Toby can help people outside his family. I'll update after our interview!


  1. Way to go Toby you are going to do GREAT! Our mom is a special ed teacher and at her former school she had a therapy dog visit regulary. The children (and staff) loved it!
