Meet Ellen's beloved Molly who brings joy
to nursing home residents
Ellen not only is helpful to others by giving so much time to
RTC working on our newsletter, she also gives of her time and
love to Project PUP (Pets Uplifting People) by regular visits
to a nursing home with her heartwarming dog Molly. Read Ellen's
own words describing her relationship with her very special pet
and friend Molly:
trained together since she was a puppy," Ellen writes, "and it
took one year of solid work to get her an obedience title and
approved for therapy work. She holds the AKC obedience title of
C.G.C. (Canine Good Citizen). We also completed an advanced 'trick'
class. I really love my dog so anything on papillons brings a
smile to my face.
"It was a goal of mine when I retired to use my skills as
a guidance counselor combined with my love of dogs to continue
to help people. Molly and I have been with Project PUP for 4 years.
So when you asked me if I still go with her--the answer will always
be a yes because I am so committed to helping people even in my
retirement. And my Molly is such a crowd pleaser!"
