Murphy’s Little Secret

Murphy has some exciting news to share this morning”¦


That’s right! My little pug-let is now a registered Therapy Dog!

For the past three weeks, the two of us have attended classes to become a Therapy Dog Team with an organization called Dog B.O.N.E.S. During the sessions, I learned all about what it takes to become a Therapy Dog handler, and Murphy was exposed to environments similar to those that we may visit.


I was actually a little nervous Murphy wouldn’t be able to do it because he gets so excited when he meets new people and will sometimes jump on them, but we practiced walking on a shorter 4-foot leash and figured out the best way for him to visit people, and he passed with flying colors!



I’m so proud of Murphy! Check out his business cards! (“TD” stands for Therapy Dog.)


After graduating Therapy Dog school last night, Murphy, of course, was appropriately rewarded.


In the next couple of weeks, Murphy and I will start to visit hospitals, nursing facilities, schools, and other locations where Therapy Dogs are wanted. We’re both really excited!
