Trial Therapy Dogs

After Doggy Nanny dropped of Uncle Puppy she called from work and asked Momma if she would mind bringing us in to visit the people at her work.

Of course to be able to go we had to have a bath....To conserve water momma made us take a bath together.

I blame the little one for this torture!

After we dried off we hopped in the car and headed into town. We arrived at Parkview a local nursing home where Doggy Nanny works. She is a human groomer there and gives the residents fancy new do's!

Heading inside

There was lots of odd items in the halls.

We sniffed each item to make sure they were safe.

We stopped by many rooms and the people petted us! We loved that!

We heard lots of strange noises too.

Sorry there are no pictures of Uncle Puppy visiting....Doggy Nanny had him.

We all had a super duper time and hope they will allow us back for another visit!

On the way home momma said we have to make another stop.

Hmmm....To the Petsmart....To the park...Oh the suspence is killing me!

As frankie would say OH CAT CRAP! Not the vets office again. Thankfully no needles were used. We only were there to check out weights.

Uncle Puppy is a big ol' 6.5 pounds. He is up a whole 1/2 pound since getting his booster shot. Since Mollie has been sick and on a special diet she has gone down to 10.1 pounds. That is about 1.4 pounds less than before she was sick. I have been keeping my manly figure and staying at a nice 16.6 pounds.

We noticed this sign on the side of Dr. Flanary's office. The Pomeranian it is refering to is Dr. Flanary's beloved Bitsy. We met her once at a party...She is a sweet girl!

Wags and Licks,


Note from the momma: I was a bit worried taking both Mollie and Bobo with me today to the nursing home. I didn't know how they would react to the sights, smells and noises. They both surprised me and never flenched. I am so proud of them and actually thinking of making them official therapy dogs. Do any of your pawrents know where I would begin? Thanks!


  1. Oh fur da love of old hoomans to haves to have a baff. Now Ms. Poodle mama, you know my mum ain't gota clue bout no therapy doggie stuff...heck, she can't even train a simple 10 lbs doxie...hehehehe!
    I thinks ya'll did a most fantastical job at da nursing home and I would seiously do some investigating.

  2. YEAH you went to a Nursing Home... I do that too!! It is very much fun. I like all the peoples to hold and pet me. I went to a lot of classes at the University of PetSmart and Intranational Stuffie Distribution, and I have graduated Three times!! That means that the LOVE for me to got to the nursing homes.
    You should go often. It is very much good for YOU and THEM.
    HOOOOORAY for you. Butt the baff thingy IS a bad thingy.

  3. Oh that is so great that you got to visit the nursing home - we bet that brought a lot of smiles to the residents! We know that helps them to feel better and makes them happy!

    And wow, Mollie Jo weighs less then Barney did at his visit on Saturday - he is 13 lbs - and he is a cat! You are a very petite girl!

  4. I go to a nursing home sometimes too. My daddy's mom lives at one near our house. Good for you for being so brave!

    Woofs and Licks,

    PeeS My mom laughed out loud when she read what frankie says. :)

  5. Group bath, how cute!

    PS I have that same green leash!


  6. How very awesome you are!! I bet you made some peoples very happy today!!


  7. MachoMan and I used to visit nursing homes. First we had to take a basic Obedience class then a Canine Good Citizen class. Macho was a big 65 lb poodle so best to make sure he knew how to behave and follow directions. Your little poo-kids should be ok if they act friendly, well mannered and don't frighten anyone. Then it's usually at the discretion of the home managers. Visiting is very rewarding for all involved :)

  8. Sure it was pawesome to go to the nursing home. I know you made the people there happy!
    Good job!
    Kisses and hugs

  9. Mom would love to have either Ciara or TD become a therapy dog too. We bet the residents loved you two. It is so good for those people too - we hear it does them so much good.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  10. You two are so precious to take time out of your busy schedule to make people happy.

    Stella, Gunther and Betty

  11. Nice job! Mom used to dream of me doing some thearpy work, but since wheelchairs and I are natural enemies, I don't think it's gonna happen!
