Brody bits... update

Thursday, November 05, 2020

Hi everyone! Remember me?? Mom has been telling me I should post an update so here it is. Riley and I are now "retired" from our jobs as therapy dogs. It goes way back to September, 2019 - just as I was getting started on my visits with our kids at school, we got caught in the middle of what Mom calls "politics" between the head person in the school district and the head person in our organization. Even though it didn't involve us at all and we had more than enough classes and certifications and shots and all that stuff - our visits were put on "hold." It made me feel really lonely and Mom was very sad. She says it wasn't our fault and that we are still her "best boys."

Riley and I kept visiting our friends at the senior place until they put up a sign that said "no visitors" due to that thing called Co-Vid. I guess no one is making visits and, because it's been more than six months, our certifications are no longer "valid." Mom says not to worry. We can choose to re-test but we'll probably just wait and do our own thing without worrying about things called "rules" and "politics."

This sure has been a confusing time - for humans too. I keep hearing those words "politics" and "Co-Vid." I just wanted to let you know we're ok and we will be ok. Hope you are too!!


P.S. We got new hair cuts yesterday!

    Hi there Brody, you guys have been missed plenty. I hope you can get back out there as soon as it can be safe. At least you have each other and your dear mom as well.

    So good to hear from you. I'm so sorry that "politics" got in the way of you all being able to share your love and joy with the children. And this whole Co-Vid thing has really made life challenging.

    Did I ever thank you or the spark goodie you sent a couple weeks ago? I've gotten so bad with keeping track of things. Trying to get it all together again now that winter is approaching.

    The boys look so cute! Thanks for sharing and bringing a big smile to my face.

    Hi Brody & Riley,
    My name is Kasey and I’m a pug and 9 years old. I’m sorry you can’t do your therapy visits any more. Things changed for me, too. My “Mom” used to take me to the dog park before all this co-vid stuff happened. I loved playing with all the doggies and I miss that so much. I don’t understand why we can’t go to that fun place any more...but “Mom” takes me on neighborhood walks and I get short visits with some dog friends sometimes. I just want things to be the way they used to be. I’m happy for you that you 2 doggies are friends and have each other and can play together. Just so you know, my “Mom” is writing this for me cuz I can’t use a keyboard. WOOF WOOF!

    “Pugs & Kisses”

    Brody, you and Riley are loved. You have a really awesome mom. You have both brought smiles to people. No matter what you do, you will still bring smiles. Just looking at you and your brother's cute picture brought me one.

    Aww thank you Brody. Glad to see that you, Riley and your Mom are doing ok. I definitely remember you, how could I forget? Just keep on hanging in there until all this nasty stuff is under control. Don't let politics get in the way, cause it is what it is, and will be what it's going to be.

    Take care and take special care of your Mom. I think she needs you more than ever now. emoticon

    I'm so glad you and Riley are OK, Brody! Tell your hu-mom all her Spark friends love both her and you two, and that somehow, we'll all get past the politics and the co-vid!
