Lacey’s Blog: Watch TV and See Me!

Tomorrow is a big day for this playful pooch — I’m going to be on TV! Yup, I have somehow wagged my way onto Sonoran Living Live, a local show here in Phoenix. I will be strutting my pet therapy stuff, with the help of my coach Susie, and showing how much I love to […]

Lacey’s Blog: Dogs Bringing Love to the Boston Community

Watching the news this week has been ruff. As a therapy dog, it’s hard for me to imagine someone doing something so awful as hurting dog’s best friends. It’s no secret that I’m an am-basset-dor of love and compassion, so I feel it is my doggy duty to point out how my fellow “furry counselors” […]

Lacey’s Blog: Therapy Dog Entertainer

Recently I was invited to show my therapy dog skills to a group of Stephen Ministers at the American Lutheran Church in Sun City. Admittedly, I couldn’t help but turn on my charm as soon as I walked into the room (I am an attention hound after all). After Bob finished speaking about all the […]

Lacey’s Blog: A New Dawn for New Friends

Somewhere between all the rivalries, dog shows and strange holidays, I have made some really special visits this past month! I can’t stop thinking about all my new friends, and I can’t help but share it all with my readers. At the end of January I was invited to New Dawn Memory Care in Sun […]

Lacey’s Blog: Best In Show (of Affection)

For all those dog-lovers out there (and competitive types), the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is not just any puppy parade — it’s the Super Bowl for dog enthusiasts. In this dog show that is almost a millennium old (for dogs at least, 136 years for humans), my Labrador counterparts surprisingly have yet to win […]

Lacey’s Blog: Go Ravens!

It was obvious what team I had to support at the Super Bowl this year. Because of my doggy DNA (Labs are “bird dogs” you know), I naturally had to go for the Ravens. Turns out my canine sense was right this time around when my team came out on top! Besides, what is a […]

Lacey’s Blog: Groundhogs Have Their Own Day?

My fellow Americans, is it right what I heard? A day for the Groundhog, it’s almost absurd. A somnolent rodent barely awake from the freeze, May turn in his tracks to catch some more ZZZ’s? His actions predict the weather and you’re enamored; despite… A meteorologist never has to be right. My Cypress co-workers scolded […]

Lacey’s Blog: Puppy No More

Yes, you’ve read it right. I just turned two (or 14 in dog years), which means I am no longer (technically) a puppy. Like many other 14 year olds out there, I’m pretty pawsitive that I’m all grown up! Now, where did I leave my chew toy? Anyway, I celebrated with my Cypress family last […]

Lacey’s Blog: Happy Howlidays!

I can hardly believe this is my second Christmas! Whew, time flies. Last December when I was still a puppy, just before my first birthday, I couldn’t wait for Santa to visit. I hid behind the tree listening to my iPod through my air buds ear buds to my favorite song — “12 Days of […]
