Hi Lois,

             I almost have forgotten to tell you---Miss Haley
is now  a certified Therapy Dog, Inc. (TDI).  They are a
national organization headquartered in Cheyenne, WYO.,
with testers and observers located throughout the USA
and Europe.    She completed the final phase of her
testing and medical facility visits on April 21st in
Lexington, KY.  My next goal for her is to train for the
READ Program.  (Reading Education Assistance Dog).  
She currently is going to the Public Library in Richmond,
KY twice a month;  but the READ program will certify her
to work in the school settings and with specific children in
a 1 on 1 basis.  I do have to tell you, though, she is a bit
of a “clown”.  Initially, she is a bit shy, but then she
“warms up” to people and likes the “spotlight”.  Thank you
for such a wonderful, healthy dog!

Hi Lois,
Just an update on Haley  -- you would have been proud of her!  We have been working with Special Education students at a local elementary school for over a
year now.  We meet once a week and we go to the gym and work on locomotor skills and manipulative skills.  Haley demonstrates the task and the child then
tries to accomplish it.  Sometimes we will have two sets of equipment set up and the student will compete with Haley.  Nov. 17th and 18th our State Convention
for Health and PE teachers was held in Lexington at the Marriott.  Haley and I did a presentation on Tuesday and I am sending along some pics from the
Convention and also some from our work with the children.  They loved her!

Hi Lois,
  Hope you are doing well.  I’m sending
a recent pic. Of Haley.  She is now 19
mos. old (42 lbs.), and is a TDI
(therapy dog, inc.) and a R.E.A.D
(Reading Educ. Assistance Dog)  Dog.  
I am so proud of her b/c she listens so
well.  (but, still likes to sneak some food
from my old guy).  She learns
something new each day; very eager to
see and learn things.  I saw where
Shelby and Sirius had a litter recently.  
Stay in touch.

Hi Losi!
Haven't written in a while.  Haley is doing great.  I enclosed this pic
from the Richmond Register Newspaper from Friday, May 2nd.  
She was on the Front Page, along with other dogs that are doing a
"Destress Event" at the University in the Library.  We started this
event last year during the last week of each semester, right before
Final Exams.  You can go online and read the article if you wish.  
She is now almost 2 and a half years old and about 45 lbs., no
more than that.  She's not quite as White as she used to be; seems
to have become more beige in color.  She works Mondays, Tues.,
and Thurs. at various places; Wed. and Friday's are her off days!  
Got to go!

Hi Lois,  Hope you are doing well!  Any new litters?  I’ve attached some pics of your girl for you.  The faces of the patients are
deliberately not shown; however, a couple of the PT and OT’s s have their full picture.  She’s a very focused worker.  Thanks.
