My Malaika passed her tests!

Recommended Posts

I am so very proud of my dog, Malaika. She just passed her Therapy Dog test and also her Canine Good Citizen test. We have a bunch of paperwork we need to send out....she will get an id...a red vest....and then we can begin to share her love. I was a bit emotional last night after I knew we had passed the tests. But I know Malaika is a very smart girl......she really is...

Thank you, guys. I am very proud of her....and we are a team. I will say having her go to (first) the Obedience Classes...you have to take that and pass before you take Therapy Dog.....Fred was in the hospital for a week and it did not look good. Doing our 'homework'....going to class......was about the only thing that kept me sane. It was....a very scary situation! But he came through.....his docs call him a tough cookie. I was so nervous taking the Therapy Dog test because she did not 'leave it' as we walked by a treat. Now...I had trained her to sit without a leash...and 'leave it'...and she did. But that is the way the test goes. So for those 7 days before the test we practiced...and practiced.....and she got it!! Just came back from our Vet....had to have her health papers filled out. She is a beautiful sweet girl with so much love to give....and this is helping me, as well.

That is so nice to hear, Beth. Im glad you have her right by your side. I hope Fred is better now. The poor man is a tough cookie!  Wow, he's been through a lot!  I'm sending the warmest thoughts and prayers for Fred and peace and strength for you.

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.
