Tell us how your dog is helping you continue #StillServing in your community.
I have two therapy dogs registered with Therapy Dog International that I take to nursing homes (non-veteran but some residents are veterans).
Why do you do it?
I do it for others as a heart-felt sharing of time and talent for myself, my dogs, and residents we visit. Amber performs tricks and Sophie provides hands-on lap loving. I’m not certified to take them both at the same time so we alternate weeks. It’s my way of giving back to the community and I know many of them miss their own days when they used to be able to have a pet of their own.
