'Davey' is now a Certified Therapy Dog,

and a Service Dog!

Here are some pictures from a day at work.

As a puppy, I was always a 'snuggle bunny', and  a lover.  I was named 'David' because it means 'beloved'.

Loving & Giving comfort....

Davey at work as Therapy Dog at our favorite class.  He works at other classes, sometimes as a speech helper, where the kids learn to talk by saying different things about him, like 'dog', 'tail','leash',brush','comb', etc. He's a wonderful incentive for them to learn, and we've seen lots of progress with our visits. The severe and profound unit, though, is our very favorite class.  The joy and interest the kids express is unequalled anywhere else!  That's where these pics were taken.  I'm so grateful we've been given the opportunity to be a part of so many incredible kids' lives.  Davey is also a Service Dog.  He shows that an afghan is much more that just another pretty face.  ~~~ Took him to one of my autistic daughters' schools 2day..these are high school kids, some of them VERY violent and loud..he was, as he always is, unshakeable. He jumped up on the sofa with one teen who has an extremely violent nature,and hates to be touched.  I was ready to get him down and AWAY from this kid, because I KNOW this boy, and he's slammed teachers against walls, torn down doors, you name it.  And there is my heart, my David Sings Hosanna, snuggled against him.  What does the kid do?  Yup, breaks out into a 3 mile smile!  A crowd gathered for this never-before-heard- of-event, and I tell you, there wasn't a dry eye among the staff.  The kid never touched David; he just sat there-- but his smile and the true joy in his, it blew us all away!! This Therapy dog stuff is a REAL addictive thing!!

Some snapshots of David  and his very special family:

~~~~. He's 'on call' for Children's Protective Services when they have an abused child in that won't talk to a person about the abuse, the child will talk to "Davey'. Afghans are not like the 'usual' therapy dog...he is friendly and loves the attention, but always maintains a sort of control over the situation.
