I got a couple of leads while at Church today, for some work for Nessie. There is a lady I know, who owns a beautiful retirement home and I asked her if Nessie could come and visit once a week. She is not a registered therapy dog, but some places will let a well behaved, gentle dog come in to visit with the community. She is checking with the people who run it and will get back to me.
While I was talking with her, another lady offered Nessie a job at the library. Apparently, some children who are struggling to learn to read, enjoy practicing with a dog instead of a person. I guess a dog doesn't spend much time on correcting the reading. They just listen patiently. So depending on the time slot, we will go there and help the kids learn to read. Nessie will enjoy having some work to do and hopefully we can make a bit of a difference in some one's life. I'll make sure to get some pictures of this, also. Maybe she'll wear the bonnet that she got for the Royal Wedding.
In the mean time, remember; "God doesn't always give us the dog we want. He gives us the dog we need." Cesar Millan
