The visits to the nursing homes went very well this morning. We visited three homes here in town we had the option to attend a fourth but were just to tired and the dog's were really zapped.
Two of the three places we have never been and the third is the same place that we went to at christmas. They are the ones who requested the dyed poodle lol.

Everyone loved the dogs of course and Jazz per usual was the big star of the day. I was so proud of Saleen she did very very well and perhaps when she is older we can get more serious about therapy work with her. She was slightly startled by a bed alarm but other than that she was A-Ok. Wonder was a princess and sat on a couple of laps and was just cute in general for residents who didn't care to pet larger dogs.

Anywho here are a few photos of our day's adventures.




This is the couple from Christmas that Jazz seemed so attached to. Apparently she remembers them and once again they seemed to be a favorite of hers. She kept wandering back over to them if I gave her the chance. They remembered her too. They lady said " I was wondering when you would be back "

This is one of the guys from the squadron who is a friend of my mothers and who participated in the veterans events. Gooft dogs wouldn't look at the camera for anything though LoL, they were more intested in making sure non of the residents had any cookies that they might want to part with lol.

Man Saleen has grown! And I can't believe you managed to navigate 3 dogs through 3 separate nursing homes. Quite impressed, I have enough trouble navigating kait through the house :p

LoL.. Mom took Wonder most of the time and John and I traded and took turns with the poodles. Biggest thing we had to watch was wheelchairs... I didn't want anyone to get rolled over LoL.

WonderPup, I think it is just wonderful what you are doing with your dogs. I can just imagine how happy it must make these residents. I'm sure most of them probably had pets of their own in their younger years. Your dogs seem to really enjoy visiting and I'm sure it is probably very gratifying too for you to see these seniors eyes light up when they get to see, pet and love on your babies. It is very sweet of you and your Hubby to take the time out of your busy schedules to share your lovely dogs with these lovely people.

Good on you WP, I too think it is an amazing thing you do with your dogs. Jazz looks great with her red halti on, it matches her perfectly.

Could never take T, he is actually quite nervous about new people, because we live in the kennels he has to be always put away when people come and he hasn't had the socialisation he would need for this kind of work.

Your dogs are fantastic!

Wonderful!! It is soooo much fun to bring poodles to the elderly. I can see that they are very happy to see them. It's amazing how many residents will tell you about past pets they had. Some of them are happy to remember and some tear up a bit but it is so gratifying to give something to these people who have given so much in their lifetime.

Kudos to you, your husband, and mom!

Great pics, just love it when our furkids meet the elderly and sick. It always makes them feel a little better.

Blue, T and Shadow seem to be kindred spirits! lol Shadow is so jumpy around new people. There is the sweetest elderly lady across the street that would love to pet him, but he doesn't want to have anything to do with her! For some reason though, if we take him to a pet store like Petsmart, he actually goes up to other people!
