Wiggle - Day 2,123
Yesterday evening Wiggle and I went to visit a care home for the elderly who would like us to visit as Pets As Therapy volunteer's.
As always, Wiggle was on his best behaviour as we were shown around and introduced to some of the residents. This will be the second place that we visit and as before, there is a mix of elderly residents, some with dementia. It was clear that Wiggle will be popular with the staff and also the residents and we're very happy to now have two homes which will we each visit twice a month.
Wiggle has been making me so proud, being gentle and calm with the residents and standing for them so they can fuss him and talk to him. He interacts with them, looking at them and gently leaning into them for as long as they stroke him and talk to him.
Some of the residents will have forgotten us by our next visit, but Wiggle won't worry, he'll just be happy to see his new friends again and bring his own therapy to them.
And for being so good, Wiggle was rewarded with some play time at Maud Heath after with Sofy, who had been a good girl and waited in the car.
