In the highest attended event of the year, the Walsh Library held a De-stress with Dogs day for our students. Over 450 students and six adorable therapy dogs attended the two hour event.
Daisy, a Golden Retriever, started doing therapy work in 2015 and volunteers at Cook Children’s Medical Center. She is also a trained bird hunting dog and loves to shake hands.
Schatzie, a half Cocker Spaniel/ half Poodle, volunteers at nursing homes and hospitals. Schatzie has traveled to 14 different states by plane, but her favorite mode of travel is in the front basket of a bicycle.
Bear with his adoring fans–and who could resist those puppy eyes? Bear made sure to greet every student and say hi.
Lola, a half Maltese/ half Rat Terrier, has been registered as a therapy dog since May. She has studied, trained, and finally graduated therapy dog school and here she is enjoying the fruits of her labor.
Reilly, a Papillon, captivated audiences with hers tricks and good manners–sneeze and she’d fetch you a tissue.
Bexar (pronounced Bear) is a Great Pyrenees. A gentle giant of a dog who proved a favorite among many of our students.
