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.
