            I hope everyone is staying warm. I am enjoying the cooler temps and counting my blessings that I live in SWGA. I love October through May, so I can certainly tolerate the other four months out of the year. 

            We are currently on visitor restrictions from Phoebe facilities and I have been checking the flu activity at the other sites prior to visiting. We certainly do not want to get the flu or spread it. Remember good handwashing or hand sanitizer during visits is the best prevention.

            Our next Workshop is scheduled for Sunday, February 17th. We will begin at 12:30 and finish by 5:00 or 5:30 at the latest. We can always use help with these Workshops especially from 3:30 until the workshop is complete. If you would like to help us out, please sign up on the calendar. I am hoping that we will hold our next evaluations on March 10th, please mark your calendars.

           I have some very sad news, Donna Franklin’s sweet Bessie crossed the rainbow bridge on Friday morning. Bessie was at home in her bed and Donna held her tight until the end. Please keep Donna and Barkly in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Bessie was a great therapy dog and often assisted as neutral dog in our workshops. She will be deeply missed.

           Please keep Linda Grimes in thoughts and prayers as she recovers from a badly sprained ankle. 

           We have added a special visit to our calendar in February. Elyse Loundenbarger invited us to visit the bible study group at the First Free Will Baptist Church on Westover Blvd., Wednesday, February 13th from 6:30 to 7:15. We will talk about our mission and the difference between therapy animals and service animals. Please sign up, or let me know if you would like to participate.

           Still working on the new website and I am hoping we can get it all together very soon. I’ve been crazy busy with the holidays, repairs to the home and four very young dogs!
