How long I’ve been a therapy animal: Since I was 11 weeks old, so 9 ½ years.
I love it when we visit nursing homes and spot people there who do not look interested or happy but then break into big smiles when we ask if they would like to pet me.
I have my CGC and my ThDA. I am just a couple visits short of my ThDX. I have visited with other AAT groups over the years and have about 500 total lifetime hours of therapy dog visits. I know at least a dozen tricks which I perform for shredded carrots. I am very much a typical Sheltie; I love to play, eat, bark and be with my people.
