Not Quite Winnie's Size

Ever since Winnie passed her Therapy Dog test a few months ago, she and I have been volunteering with the PAWS for Reading program.  This morning, we went to YMCA summer camp for the kids there to read to her.  

While we were waiting for the children to arrive, I tried her Italian Greyhound friend Angelo's size extra small therapy dog vest on her.



This is why I had to make Winnie's vest myself, instead of buying one ready made.  (See her vest in THIS post.)

Feels great to be out there volunteering with one of my dogs again.  Emma was a natural born therapy dog, and it will be a miracle if I ever have another dog who loves it as much as she did.  Winnie is still trying to decide whether she likes therapy dog work.  She gets more comfortable each time we go.  As long as I can make it fun for her, we will keep at it.

Hard to look at her and not smile, isn't it?

  4. She is sooo adorable! She will be a great therapy dog. You just look at her and you feel warm inside. I love her happy eyes. (BTW, I like the vest you made for her better!)

  5. I see her tail is wagging, so she must be enjoying herself. :-) She is such a cutie pie. I like the little pink camo 'therapy dog jacket' you made her too. She looks adorable in it.

    Have a lovely weekend ~ FlowerLady

  6. You are so right, it is impossible to look at her and not smile and she warms my heart too! She's a real polished gem, and such a lady, in her cool custom made uniform -- Even one that's too big! :-)
