We went to the second nursing home today. Riley did great! All her training is paying off. She did feel the need to sniff this guy’s bandage on his foot but she stopped when I told her to “Leave It.” There was a group of about 5 residents that really loved her, so we visited with them twice. They wanted to know when we were coming back and said they would always want to see her. One lady said she loved Riley. One lady was calling Riley “Wally,” but that’s okay, my hearing’s not always that great either. Riley responded to her anyway.
I heard stories about one lady’s Beagle, a guy’s Bichon Frise, and a woman’s Shih Tzu. It’s neat to hear about what kind of dogs people have owned. Anyway, I’ll be calling to schedule our next visit soon!
