Our Australian Shepherds, Lacy and Max, are 6 1/2 years old and have been registered therapy Dogs (with Therapy Dogs International) for over half their lives. Over this period of time we have taken them to an adult with disabilities daycare center and CCAD during finals weeks. We also visit Ohio Sate University during final weeks during this stressful time for the students and visit the Human Resourse department to raise money for their philanthropy events.
Currently we visit Columbus Dublin Springs every Friday for about an hour with Max (Bill) and Lacy (Kathy) to different units. There they offer comfort and diversion to the patients and give us great satisfaction in sharing our dogs.
