Tessa and I just completed the Delta Society Dog Therapy Team training, passed a performance exam before a board of examiners, and we are now a certified dog therapy team. We go into assisted living facilities in my high desert community and also visit people who are home bound for one reason or another for my church. Tessa is perfect for this work as she is a super-duper sweetie — the most loving and gentlest of girls. She is a joy to me every day and to those we visit, and I can tell from her great big smiles, that she feels the same way. We are getting to know all of our neighbors through our daily walks. We will vacation on the central coast in Cambria this summer with my sister and Tessa’s canine cousins!
