Carlos and Moonpie therapy dogs

My dogs Carlos and Moonpie. Both CGC certified! Carlos was a therapy dog since November. He passed away last weekend. The weekend before he passed he "showed" Moonpie the ropes as she completed her first rounds at the nursing home that we have new companions start at. Today Moonpie went it alone, I was worried that she wouldn't do well because Carlos wasn't there but she did amazing, we had to leave early because of a storm but I'm so proud of her!

Carlos, 14yr, Alaskan Malamute. Yes he was blind! I only had him for a year, he was a rescue, but he has impacted me just as much as Moonpie has in her 9 years with me! His favorite woman to visit was a blind woman at the nursing home that we started at. She called him her brother and he would have been content to stay for hours with her if time permitted!



Moonpie, 9.5 years old, bassett/border collie/springer spaniel mutt, she's in remission from an unidentified cancer (soft tissue sarcoma stage 2) she's amazing and I absolutely love her! She got to meet the blind woman today. She sat with her for 30 minutes and then a storm hit. She got uneasy and anxious from the lightning so we left early.
