Great stuff. Glad to here that Bear is using his powers for good. Angus is being pulled to the dark side!! It will be awhile before he's capable of greeting strangers, young and old.

Way to go Bear!   Great job you guys!  You probably made many people's day!  That is wonderful!  Maddie and Klondike have a few more classes & then they go for their Pet Therapy test too.  We hope that they will pass and then we are visiting our friend's son Mike's school.  It is a school for Special Needs kids and they are pretty much lined  up for Spring visits!   I hope they pass the test!  Klondike is pretty laid back but, Maddie isn't always a huge fan of strange noises.  We shall see!

Keep up the Great work, Jaime, Michael and Bear!

Those pictures totally choked me up...  Bear did such a great job, and we are all so proud of him.  How wonderful of you to share him with people who need his love...

Awww way to go Bear, it just goes to show how special our big dogs really are, and how much they have to give. It so easy to see how it made everyones day to see him, and I'm cure they are all thinking  "I wonder when he will be back?"  ;D

Yeah Bear!  Bo is a therapy dog, too!  She works with me at my job as a psychotherapis t.  She works mainly with adults with severe mental illness, but we're about to start doing group therapy for kids with Autism.  It's a nice perk to be able to take her to work with me!  We used to work with a boy with Cerebral Palsy and he kept a photo of Bo by his bed.
