From my Towhee & Ty litter sire's owner & breeder:
How can you help? For those that have inquired about helping with some "Golden Therapy," THANK YOU! The gathering in Sandy Hook is being coordinated by the Hudson Valley Golden Retriever Club.
But, something I was reminded of tonight as I was reflecting on my day, is that we all want to help when there is a tragedy such as this one. However, every day there is probably someone in our own town who has been involved in a car accident or might be suffering from disease. These folks need us, too. If interested in sharing your dogs loving spirit and a little bit of your time, explore your local therapy dog organizations, whether that is Therapy Dogs International or maybe Pet Partners or Delta Society and get your dogs certified. Then, let's all contact our local nursing homes and hospitals and children's centers and offer our services. Remember the old saying, think globally but act locally? I was never more reminded of that than I was today. We have an amazing breed with so much love to share!
