Meet Mariya!

I'm a tiny little Shorkie!  I am a wonderful little dog who you can't help falling in love with.   I was born on the 4th of July and I am Mom's little firecracker!  I have graduated from several training courses and have to admit my favorite part of the training was agility.  I love weaving in and out of the cones!  I do also enjoy going kayaking with mom.  I stand up straight, with my paws on the top edge of the kayak, until I get bored...I then go underneath to sleep for a bit!  

Things I Have Learned from Humans:  Being cute is only half the battle - you have to be a good girl too (which I am!).

Things My Owner Has Learned from Me:  Unconditional love and patience!

Favorite Trick & Favorite Treat:  My favorite trick is to play 'Dead Dog' to get yummy Bil Jac treats! 

Make No Bones About It...I Am a Great Therapy Dog Because:  I go to work everyday with Mom.  It's enjoyable to spend time with everyone there and that is why I'm excited about my new career as a therapy dog.  I see the joy I bring to those in our office everyday, I can't wait to put a smile on someone's face that really needs it!

My Favorite Places to Visit: Forestview at Springhill, Barnes & Noble.  My volunteer handler is named Tammy.
