Tales of Baxter the Therapy Dog…

So last night was Read Across America… Baxter did an exceptional job with all the crowd of kids, parents, grandparents, characters (as they were also celebrating Dr. Suess Cat in the Hat Birthday and had people in custume there for the kids), and other people passing. He was attentive and kind, even when the kids who were a little too rough. For his efforts and good behavior he was rewarded with some ice cream…

The boys love ice cream...

As you can see Chase needed a reward for having to wait for us with his daddy in the truck and not getting to go into the mall with us.

I couldn’t get a good shot of Baxter with the kids, all I could get in the commotion was this one…

Proud TDI dog

I think Baxter and I would be willing to do this again if the chance arose. Baxter seemed to soke up all the attention, smells (can you  say food court), and sights of a mall. I think the smells were his favorite;)

The night and event went well. I hope you all had a good Saturday.
