Patches is a Portuguese Water Dog. She loves to give kisses and will stay by your side as long as you pet her. She‘s been certified as a therapy dog for just over a year and she loves the time she spends on visits. Oreo, her Bernadoodle sister is still too active but she’s in training to get her certification so she can bring her love outside our home. These dogs have more friends in my neighborhood than I do. People come to visit them daily and hardly a day goes by that I don’t hear a toddler outside my house yelling for the dogs to come out and play.
Whenever Patches and I walk into a facility, whether it’s a hospital, school or assisted living facility, there are smiles all around. Everyone wants love from patches and she is happy to oblige. She can’t wait to get back to work in person once the restrictions are lifted. Her job is an important one and she truly loves it!
