Zoe went the extra mile last night......for the past four and half years we have gone to the Post Tramautic Stress Ward at our local VA Center....many of the men have been there for quite a few years....one man in particular has taken a shine to us.....he is from upstate New York and thinks I am someone in his family.....this year he has been very ill.....the nurses told me he had been asking to see the 'black dog' for several weeks....they said it was the only thing keeping him going.....usually he is in the TV room when we see him, but since he has been ill, he has been confined to bed......so before we left we went to his room to see him....when we walked in his whole face light up.....and Zoe, my girl who really doesn't like to visit people in bed ( she prefers folks in wheelchairs or sitting around a table) went right up to him, put her head on the bed where he could rub her ears....I was so proud of her......

Wow. Good girl, Zoe! You'll never forget a moment like that.
Lee, you have every right to be proud of her. Good girl Zoe
Good girl Zoe!
Oh, what a touching story. Very sweet, Zoe girl!
You know Simon and I are taking Pet Therapy classes now. He really tanked on the "baseline" test last week : But tonight was better.

Way to go Zoe. I hope we can share touching stories with Riley some day.
Good Job Zoe!!!! Dogs just naturally have that special intuition and know when people need their special love Buddy & I just graduated tonight from Intermediate Obedience Training and start Therapy Dog Training in the fall. I hope Buddy picks it up like your Zoe did! Way to Go ;D
Good girl, Zoe! I'm sure it was a very touching moment.
What a great story! It's those moments like that that you treasure, and it's moments like when your dog farts that you want to slink into oblivian.
