My first therapy work
For those who are not familiar, my brother Bond is a certified therapy dog. He goes to old folks homes, hospice, schools for children with special needs and makes friend with the residents / students.
And its very amazing to see the results on how some of the residents / students response to therapy dogs like Bond :)
This is Bond at work and this is more about Bond's therapy work
Since Bond feels like lazing around last friday, I when for my FIRST THERAPY SESSION on behalf of Bond.
I when to a day care centre for the old aged and a hospice. The first resident that I met was an old lady who was blind and it feels so good to have her touching me :D. The second resident that I met was Grandma Mary, Grandma Mary is also blind and she keeps touching me and said, "Boo Boo is so BIG and FAT !!! Boo Boo's coat is so soft !!!!!".
I do agree that I am big and have soft coat .... but errr. .... FAT ???? hmmmmm ..... maybe she sense me eating lots of stuff :P
There after, we went to the wards in the hospice. However, most of the patients were having their naps and we didnt actually get to meet many patients. I went to one patients who pretended to be sleeping but his face light up when he saw me ******SMILE******
I stayed and cuddled with him for a while and I got some of my other doggy friends to perform for this old man (errrrr .... old man like me cant perform, I leave that to the young ones :P). He is really a sweet old man.
I hope Bond feels lazy from now on, so that I can go on his behalf more often.
I had wanted to post some pics up but again, Fat Fat and Gal Gal reminded me that it may not be nice to post up photos of the residents and patients without their permission .... hmmmm ... well .... ok .... what a waste .......
Is there really no other way I can share my joy with my friends ???? ...... :(
