Kate Helps Others Now
Tuesday, 17 February 2009

Kate is the boxer mix I adopted from you all in 2001. She has been a delightful, smart, affectionate sweetheart and wonderful companion. Now, she is spreading her precious personality to those in need of comfort, entertainment and joy. We became a certified therapy dog team last spring with Therapy Dogs Inc. ( national organization) and the Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs ( local). We visit nursing homes, hospitals, shelters, schools, library kids' reading programs etc. Attached is a picture of Kate in her official "uniform".


Kate has been such an example of what can happen when people make every effort to rescue and care for unfortunate, homeless dogs. Not only is she a treasure to others but, she enjoys the life of an indulged, loved little princess. Her best friend, besides me, is a little boy in my neighborhood who lost his parents and grandmother at an early age. He comes often to visit and play with Kate. Those visits are full of romps, hugs and kisses.
