Lady (our Black Lab therapy dog) recently received her Canine Good Citizen title.
Congratulations to Lady! She is now working on accumulating her therapy hours.
So, for all of you who have asked "how much longer will Queso be in training"? ...
The short answer is "I still don't know". However, he has passed a couple of major milestones in the past week.
Last week Queso passed his AKC Canine Good Citizen test and today he passed his temperment test with Faithful Friends (a local volunteer therapy animal program).
Since we are now officially keeping track of Queso's "therapy" hours, my goal is to get him more engaged and involved (rather than letting him succumb to laziness and sleep the day away in his dog bed). We are also still working on cementing a couple of commands ('lie down' and 'stay'), so we might be practicing that in the office periodically.
We also plan to volunteer in the Reading with Rover program with 4th and 5th graders.
Thank you to everyone who has helped so far with Queso's therapy hours. We appreciate your willingness to include him in your day.
We hope to see you soon - either in the office or out in the community.
