Story Time with Finnegan

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. . . .

 

Signed, 

Finney
