Therapy Dogs Josie and Summer "Paws With Love to Share" ©

I'm so happy to share the news that this month Northrock's Black Seal CGN "Josie" and UCH UR01 Nuphar's Soak Up The Sun RN PCD CGN "Summer" passed their Interaction With Children evaluations with Therapeutic Paws of Canada . These two loving Barbets are now certified to participate in TPOC's various children's programs. Therapeutic Paws of Canada is a non-profit organization of volunteers providing animal resources for human needs (physical, mental, educational, motivational, socialization) through regular visits to hospitals, residences, schools, etc.

Josie is from our Chmurnik x Sophie litter and owned and loved by Brian Ferri and JoAnne Clement. This special Barbet has also been accepted into the Victim Witness Assistance Program (VWAP) and will soon begin her work with them in addition to continuing her regular visits with a local senior's adult day program.  Well done Brian and Josie and thank you for your service to our communities.

Summer, bred by Anne Plomp and Miska Aksular travelled from the Netherlands to become a part of our family. She is a lovely dog and we are all so happy to be sharing our lives with her. Stephanie and Summer enjoy doing many different activities but therapy work is certainly a favourite for them both.
