I was about three years old when my Mom found me in the animal shelter.  She kept saying she would know The One by “something in the eyes.”  I was scared and shy, but looked right into her eyes – and her heart – to let her know it was me.  Now I have a good forever home and a special vest I wear to visit people in a hospital, a hospice, and an assisted living facility.  They pet me and give me treats, and I try to look into their hearts, too, to make them feel better.  It must work because they always smile when they see me coming.  If you would like to know more about my work, check out the National Capital Therapy Dogs, Inc at
