Photobucket Photobucket Therapy dogs spread happiness, love, and cheer to people who otherwise might be lonely, sad or slow to heal. This is the journey of Cayman, a longhair miniature dachshund and his journey and experiences visiting becoming a therapy dog.

Did you know that pet visits often spark good memories of a person's own pets? Dogs often can reach people and children who have withdrawn from the world. It's been suggested by science that petting a dog can lower blood pressure, reduce anxiety and stress, and promote healing.

Temperament Testing on Sunday!

At last! We are making our first official step towards therapy work! Sunday we are meeting with the PAWS Ministry coordinator for Cayman's temperament testing and orientation! I have to drive about 30 minutes to get there (its in Cape Coral and I live in Ft Myers) but so worth it, especially if he passes. Please cross your fingers that he does!

Good Luck
I fretted about Ruby's test to become a therapy dog. It was all for nothing she passed. She was also one of the youngest dogs to pass the SJA Therapy Dog test. I knew deep down that she was cut out to do this work.

WOW... it takes a very special dog to attempt passing at such a young age.

Good Luck!

We know you will pass!
