We are a little behind the eight ball on the first annual National Therapy Animal Day. It was this past Monday on May 18th. Since I have been doing therapy work with Gambler and Glory for over a year now I wanted to share this day with everyone even know it has passed. Animal therapy is so important to children and adults as well as to the therapy animals handler. I feel so much joy after a therapy visit with one of my dogs. To see what these animals can do to brighten the day’s of others is something I can’t describe. Some may ask me why I subject my “hunting dogs” to costumes that “real” dogs don’t wear costumes I beg to differ. My friend gave me a template for some fake money that I could put a picture of my dog on and give to the kids. I Put Gambler with his G$ glasses on on the money. I printed them off, cut them out and had the kids play with the money as well as playing with Gambler. After their time was up I told them they could keep some of the money. You should of seen the kids faces when I told them that! They asked me if I was for real and that they could really keep it, yes you can keep it. That is why I dress my dogs up in costumes, so they can make someone else’s day brighter.
