I waited to post this until we received our Vest and Id.  We finished the last of the 10 IT (in training) visits on October 21, 2017.   I sent the paperwork in on October the 24th and received our vest back November 8 or 9th.  I didn’t post because I wanted to have pictures taken as this was a very important thing to me.  I wanted to Sassy to be a Therapy dog but we never got the chance to do that.  So when I got Snickers that was a goal that I set out for us.  Lots and lots of training and here we are.

My friend from work takes pictures and did an awesome job with these.  Snickers did not want to look at the camera but thanks to a few squirrels and people walking dogs by we got some great pictures.  🙂

So without further ado.  I present Michelle & Snickers certified Therapy dog team

    Sooooo Awesome! This is something I aspire to with Elly, but we have along way to go still. I thought about it with Maggie but like you with Sassy I never got the chance.
    Team Snickers is such an inspiration!
