no, not an elf - It's Lafferty when he was a puppy!! Isn't he just precious!! Lafferty was in the Guide Dog for the Blind program until he was "career changed" out of the program (due to health problem) and we were soooo very fortunate to adopt him. Anyhow, I ran across this pic the other day and just had to share it. I was lucky enough to get several "puppy pics" of Lafferty from his puppy raiser Nancy.
Soon Lafferty will have a NEW VEST to wear - his Therapy Dog vest. We just recently passed our certification and now I just have to finish submitting all the paperwork and then we will be an OFFICIAL Therapy Dog Team. We are part of a local group of Therapy Dog Teams called Dogs of Endearment. Tomorrow, Sat., Dec. 8th you can find several team members and their dogs at Spiegelhoff's Grocery Store in Kenosha, WI on 80th Str. They will be bell ringing for the Salvation Army in the AM. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and say hello. Lafferty was all set to help out too - had his Santa hat and sweater all ready, but I got poky with my paperwork and since we are not OFFICIAL, we couldn't volunteer. We hope to stop by though and show support and donate to the Salvation Army.
