I’ve been a HOV Volunteer since:
My interests, hobbies and talents:
From the first day I came to live in my forever home, my mom knew I was destined to be therapy dog. She always says that “it was just there,” my wonderful temperament that is. Guess it’s because I’m just so easy. I love being brushed. I love being the center of attention. I’m low maintenance and self-sufficient, even telling my family (with my soft, “indoor voice” of course) when my water bowl is empty and when it’s time for walk. I also love car rides and am a good traveler to our summer home where I volunteer with bereaved children. I just love kids!
My work at HOV:
When my mom says the words I love—“Do you want to go to work?”—and shows me my Hospice of the Valley vest, I get excited. I’m the ‘go-to’ dog and go wherever HOV needs me—skilled nursing homes, assisted living facilities, private homes, even greeting the public at HOV community functions. You name it, I’m there. I’m undaunted by busy halls and crowds.
Rest assured I make lots of friends wherever I go. If I’m lucky, I even get to carefully hop onto a sofa and cuddle with my elderly friends. I somehow instinctively know just what to do for each and every person I meet to make them happy.
