Think about making a difference in one life ... now think about having an impact on thousands of lives, and being able to do it with your "one in a million" dog! That's been my good fortune as a founding member of Creature Comfort Pet Therapy, first working with my late chocolate teddy bear/Labradoodle, Koko, and currently partnering with Sawyer Ostrander, Michelle Ostrander's amazing Weimaraner whom Koko and I mentored back in 2012. Koko touched so many people with her ever present smile, willingness to pose for photos and popularity ... she worked far and wide for CCPT, and didn't stop until weeks before her passing in 2015. For her efforts, Koko received a wall full of national and state honors, including posthumous recognition in New Jersey and Maine. Although my current beloved Labradoodle Élan has yet to measure up to therapy dog standards, we will be walking in Koko's memory, and for all of the valiant volunteers, both two and four legged, that make CCPT the gold standard in pet therapy in New Jersey. Won't you please help us achieve our goal in this highly unusual and stressful year? Thanks, and happy walking to all!
