Join Page 158 Books for a special story time with therapy dog Finnegan!
My name is Finnegan. I am a five year old English Golden. Therapy dogs are similar to service dogs that they are out a lot in public; however, the big difference is we are supposed to be touched and loved one by many. I have been a therapy dog for three years now.
I love kids because I can look them in the eye and smile at them. They are the perfect height for me and they are way more fun than adults. I work with my mother and brother every year for Special Olympics. I also like to go to colleges and high schools when the kids are stressed from exams and visit elementary schools for show and tell. Mom and I are currently trying out for Duke Raleigh Hospital to work in the Cancer Center when people get chemo. I hope we pass!
I have the best job in the whole world because I get everyone to kiss and hug me and that's my job! Mom says I always focus on the ones that need it the most.
Mom has me trained to do tricks too . . .seems to make everyone laugh and I just like it because it's fun.
That's my story. . . .
Our craft for the day will include cookie decorating! This will be a part of Wake Forest’s Downtown Open House. We will also have trivia at 3pm, free coffee, and $1 off beer and wine throughout the day.
