    Thought I'd post a bit of good news here. I am very proud to tell you all that my dog has passed an assessment to be a Pets As Therapy dog!!!! She got top marks, even though I was a nervous wreck about it!

    I will now be taking her along with a couple of other people/dogs to a local children's hospital ward and to a secure facility for people with personality disorders (got to be careful, or I might find myself being an inpatient!).

    It's scary stuff, but I'm hoping that my dog will brighten someone's day, like she does for me. It seems a bit selfish to keep her all to myself. I need to get out more to try and keep the ole depression at bay, so i thought I'd give this a go.

    I'll let you know how we get on.

    Piglet,

    Congrats to you and your dog! Maybe getting out more, meeting more people will help with the depression. I know that getting my rear end out of the house helps a lot when my mood starts to go down.

    Again congrats for caring so much for others!

    Great job on all counts Piglet. You should be proud and I am sure you and your dog will make a great team. Obviously your great training is a reflection of your dog's top marks.

    Piglet, How awesome. For your pooch to get top marks you must be one loving owner, a pet is a reflection of its owner. I am so proud of you both.....That is just lovely and makes me want to tear up.....Definately applaud you both...that is lovely....

    That is so cool, piglet! Congratulations!

    I considered the same with my dog, but ptsd interfered. Still, she's a great unofficial therapy dog for us, our friends, neighbors, and residents of our local nursing home.

    Best wishes for you and your dog's future healing adventures! I'm looking forward to hearing about them!
