Earl spent the summer vacation going to the beach, fishing and swimming...And being at the library listening to kids read books to him!

Earl is now an official Therapy Dog! He and I have taken and passed the Good Citizen Test and the training for the therapy program. The Canines for Therapy program trains owners and their dogs to provide animal-assisted visitations in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, group homes and treatment facilities. He had his first visit to a retirement community and was so sweet and calm with the residents.
I have observed a team with the Canines for Literacy Program and hope to be added to the elementary school schedule in the fall.
We are fortunate to have this program right here in our town. The folks that trained us are compassionate and extremely knowledgeable about dogs and their behaviors.

Right as we got to the pier to board the boat, Ella ran down the gangplank and stopped on the edge of the dock! Everyone said "Whew, thought she was going in the water..!" And then she - Jumped off the dock into the water and sank like a rock! Keith yanked her into the boat and she obediently sat still for the rest of the ride over to the island!
Ella dragged Mamaw to the surf...
Earl "fished" most of the time, while Ella attempted to swim out to some surfers.
a little video made in 2009, when Earl was 2 months old....
