Hello friends! :-h I just wanted to brag! (Sorry 'bout that) :D Last month my parents attended a workshop at the NYC ASPCA to learn about training me to become a Therapy Animal. The Today show happened to be there taping a segment on therapy animals! You can check out my parents in the small audience watching the pet evaluation!!!! Mommy asked a question about cats (of course)! I am just really, really happy that a lot of people will learn about the benefits of animals in hospitals, etc....I hope a lot of people see it and will be motivated to get their cats and dogs involved! It's a lot of fun! ;c; The Delta Society (which certifies us) is a great organization too! Check them out if you have the time! :) Thank you!!! Animal Assisted Therapy Rocks!!!! ;c;;c;;c;

    Oh Oliver, how great for you and your family. I'll have to look for it, maybe YouTube will have it, as well. Pet therapy is so pawsome! Mom works in a children's hospital and thinks its wonderful to see how the children's faces light up when they get a furry visitor.
