How long I’ve been a therapy animal: Two years.
I always ask if the person I am approaching is an "animal person." Usually, I get a positive answer, but not always. I never push Angel onto anyone! One time the answer was, "Not so much." So, rather than going on to someone else, I stayed and visited with her about other subjects. After a few minutes, she began to smile and respond to Angel. Soon they were good buddies!!
