Congratulations to Team Bev and Lea for earning our 1st AKC Therapy Dog Novice Title!  Lea is now known as AZSunshine's Lady AnnaLea Von Weiss CD BN THDN CGCA.

Points towards this title are earned each time Lea and I go out and do therapy work.  Most of our points were earned when we did the "Read To A Dog" program at our local library.  We spend an hour each visit letting children pet and read their favorite books to Lea.  Some of the children actually turn the book towards Lea's face so she can see the pictures as they read.  It is so awesome to watch. It has taken us a while to earn this title as we are only scheduled once a month at the library.  We have also participated in Read to a Dog, Literacy Night and Poetry Nights at 3 of our local elementary schools.  We hope to continue doing therapy work as it is so rewarding.
