Meet Essie!

I was certified as a therapy dog in May 2010.  I am a 7-year old Shih Tzu who loves everyone!  I am so excited when we have a visitation day...I love visiting everyone and having them make a fuss over me. 

Things I Learned from Humans:  I've learned that they will do exactly what I want them to do if I just look cute enough!

Things My Owner Has Learned from Me: My owner has learned to keep me on a leash or in a fenced yard or I'll escape to go meet someone new.  Did I tell you how much I love to visit?

Favorite Trick: Escaping from our back yard when someone leaves the gate open.

Favorite Treat: Let's see - I guess that would be a sneak from the cat food bowl when no one is looking.

Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because.... I LOVE to visit!

My Favorite Places to Visit:  Abington Crest.  My volunteer handler is named Linda.
