Ooo's and aahhh's erupted when we opened the door.
Court Street Baptist Church & Court Street Academy on April 24.  
He was a great representation of the calm, gentle nature of a therapy dog,
and he was a wonderful Shiloh breed ambassador.  

We spoke to a group of about 30 students, teachers and parents who are members of the
school's Community Outreach Program, which involves students in volunteer activities in our
community and beyond.

We spoke about how therapy dogs perform community outreach, shared how a dog becomes a
therapy dog, talked about what it means to own a dog, and how to approach a dog for petting.
The children asked lots of questions, and we enjoyed answering them!

Then, the children all lined up to pet our "gentle giant".
