  1. Happy Belated Birthday!
  2. Now I see it....thank you...yes, I have noticed it a lot lately on here.
  3. Notice some spam posted..
  4. Thanks, guys...it really does make me happy to do this. Wanted to share this, too. I also home visit a 95 year old woman named Jane. She has had poodles all her life but now it is too hard for her. This is something separate from the hospital visits. This is through Caregiver Canines. These are visits with a senior in their own home....they cannot keep dogs anymore for whatever reason...but they sure do love and appreciate seeing them. Anyway, I took Malaika to have her pic taken with the Easter Bunny. I kept a pic and I made one for Jane and got it framed. The framed one here in the photo is mine but I got Jane the same color frame. She absolutely loved it!! She says now she can show her friends who visits.....who visits her!
  5. Here she is from yesterday. We visited the whole 4th floor....3F and 3D...there is a small gym there and very nice nurses who give treats! And down to the Infusion/Onocology. Some people just do not want to see your dog and it is starting to not bother me so much. They might have had some not so nice experience with them. There is more than enough people who want to see her....ask about her. But the patients love talking about their pets...one man in Infusion has a pet pig and showed me photos.
  6. Wanted to wish Linda (Ref) a very Happy Birthday. I know a lot of the people who used to post aren't here anymore.......but when I think of this Farm (and those Dirty Knobs) I think of you, Linda....wishing you a beautiful day...
  7. Thank you, Nel! Today, after our Therapy Dog Drop-In Class....we signed up for Agility Classes! It looks like such fun!
  8. I found this, Nurk...it is the last song at the bottom....http://performingsongwriter.com/tom-petty-songs/
  9. Thank you, Farmers.
  10. ^ Me, too, Marion! What to do today.....already ran my 2 miles.....walked Malaika....will be heading out to her therapy dog drop-in class in a while. She loves going and so do I!
  11. Malaika and I are now an Official Therapy Dog Team at Community Medical Center! We have been visiting there for a 2 weeks now...getting the hang of it and yesterday was the first day I signed in. So proud of my girl, Malaika. People love to see her....ask about her name......and also how she became a Therapy dog. They thank us and so many say we have made their day.....but they sure make our day, as well. It is such a great feeling.....Malaika has a lot of love to give. Next class.....Agility! I have already bought her a simply agility kit...tunnel....hurdle....slalom......she loves the tunnel!! Here she is dressed to go visit patients yesterday at the hospital for St. Patrick's Day. She was going to wear her green boa but the feathers would fly out!
  12. Always early!
  13. Sending out Happy Birthday wishes and love to Mike....I thank him for all he does for those dogs.....rock on, Mike!
  14. Thank you. Malaika was so very good today at our appointment at Caregiver Canines. They all fell in love with her...had some papers to fill out and we will be visiting with a woman not too far from me after Danielle goes to talk and visit with her. Malaika aced that elevator, too! Good girl!
  15. Thank you for the prayers, Marion...yes, we/he are always needing them. Today at our drop-in class (these are 'fun' classes you can go to when you want to learn new things...I think it is good for Malaika and I to go) Malaika got her red Therapy Dog vest. We have an appointment on Wednesday morning with Caregiver Canines. They want to meet Malaika....see how she is.....and try and match her up with a senior. We would visit that person every week. From there....maybe I will try the hospital's onocology floor. I am remembering how the therapy dogs came and visited Fred when he was there...and how they made us forget all that was going on...if only for a bit.
