Today is Marshal’s tenth birthday and “official” Retirement Day. We will be visiting a couple of the facilities where Marshal has done pet therapy for the last nine years. It will be a chance for staff to say farewell and give him one more chance to visit with them. We wanted to make this Marshal’s Special Day and do a few things that make him happy. The Marshal Man has spent his entire lifetime in service to others. He has made over 300 therapy visits meeting thousands of people in the process. His visits always made him happy. He offered everyone he met a smile and a wag of his tail.
Thanks to all his lab friends who voted for him, Marshal won a Halloween Photo Contest last month. In his honor, we are going to his vet’s office to present their Feather and Fur Fund with the prize from the American Animal Hospital Association which we received last Saturday. We will be matching the gift. This fund provides assistance to needy animals. We wanted to honor Marshal during his lifetime for all the work he has done while ministering to others. This seemed like a fitting way to honor him.
These are his latest pictures taken this past weekend.
Thank you Marshal for ten wonderful years.
