    Hi, guys! This is an old post, but I’m reposting it on CNC since I get questions from time-to-time about how Murphy and I become a therapy dog team. I hope you find the information helpful and it inspires you and your favorite furry friend to become a therapy dog team too! People often ask me […]



    Hi, friends! Happy, happy, happy Friday! I’m not sure if you noticed, but I did a little less blogging this week. After my digital detox over the weekend, I realized that I really need to take care of myself and not work so much and, well, sleep, so that’s exactly what I did. I actually went […]

Overall, Murphy is doing quite well. When we first came home from the hospital, things were a little rocky, but he’s slowly but surely starting to act like […]

We actually walked so much over […]

    By the time I got home from Sweetgreen yesterday, it was just about time for Murphy’s afternoon walk.
