Who gives therapy to a therapy dog?

This thought came to me while writing another story with a small therapy dog as a major character. In real life, if these remarkable dogs seem stressed out, not ready to show off their trained talents, what happens next? Does the owner take them to the Veterinarian? Calling emergency when Muffy appears to to be down for the count?

I can’t see that happening. The Vet, rushing over, bag in hand with pep-me-up meds. Way NO! Or playing catch, Fido’s favorite game, doesn’t even lift his sweet head. What to do, what in the world to do unless your therapy dog needs a companion, a cutie he sniffed at the Vets. A pooch in a crate as sad as your pup, alone with no furry sweetheart to curl up next to.

As a human with a big heart, I say go for it. We enjoy companionship so why not our counterpart canines. All we need is love, oh yeah, all we need is love.

Catch my latest release Chef’s Surprise where a therapy dog plays a big part in strengthing the Grandmother after a TIA , Temporary Ischemic Attack, and love enters the penthouse on Central Park West.

One night, she ran. For the bus to freedom and a new life. She had a plan, and a small box of cash.

With grit and determination, the young girl learned more than lessons at nursing college, the first part of her plan.

Someday, she would become a top chef, but for now, she’d claw her way up the ladder.

There is payback for every crime, and sometimes the payback is more than satisfactory.

  1. They helped in bringing me back to life last summer. Therapy dogs came to visit daily. My close friend is head of Paws for a Cause. I wrote At Your Service during the seven week rehab. I couldn’t think clearly yet the dog stories flowed through my undamaged fingers. Thanks for stopping by. Oh one more thing, I’ve written therapy dogs into several of my books. Young at Heart has my friend’s Bichon Frise cast as a major character. Be well, my friend.
