She did it!
I can't be happier right now. We met our Therapy Dog director at the hospital today to do Sagira's first visit. She looked so cute with her new Coach collar, her new Therapy Dog bandanna on. She did great for her first time. She did bark a few times but once she was there and moving around she did fabulous. She did a perfect job on the elevator for the first time. I didn't get her enough credit. She CAN do this and is going to be great at it. She acted like this was what she was meant to do.
Our first room was wonderful. Two elderly ladies sharing a room. I walked in first and told them we had our therapy dog today and asked if they would like a visit. The smile on their face was priceless. She was like "oh yes". So we entered our first patients room with Sagira and she went right up to the bed and let the lady pet her. It was so cute. The other lady then pulled back the divider and asked to see her as well. This was just so touching to us.
Angie told us that Sagira did a great job today and she didn't see any areas of concern. We get to do the next visit by ourselves.
The pictures are of Sagira with us before we went to the hospital. Due to TDI guidelines we will not be able to share any pictures from the hospital visit itself.
