A little fun about Bert

Bert got his picture in the Paper
check out the link below
if you get a moment.


 Hope you could download the article
Bert just loves the kids and I think he
is really enjoying the reading.
He especially enjoys the cuddles
each child gives him during and
after each session
FYI:  We are reading everyones
blog posts but it takes about
five minutes to download
the comment pages.
We don't know what is wrong
but just know, we are keeping up
Bert and My Vickie

Oh Yes.  One more thing.  Thanks
to all of you who responded
to World Guys Dog "Nice"
and their financial needs due
to Nice's degenerative knee disease.

The surgery was successful and
in a few months the two
will be able to continue on their
Nationwide Diabetes Awareness Walk.

Get to know them at
World Guy and Nice

  14. This is such a sweet article and great publicity for therapy dogs generally. Wish our local schools had a similar program - but our school board has actually banned all class pets and animals out of misguided concerns about allergies and diseases. So sad.

  15. Bert, we bet you bring lot of smiles and contentment to those children. You are so relaxed and it looks like they love you so much. We think what you are doing for all those children, especially Ryan, is just spectacular. Thank you and your Vickie for your pawesome work.
