Phoebe

Phoebe is a 9-year-old, AKC-registered, black American cocker spaniel.  She was born in Chattaroy, Washington, and was 8 weeks old when I brought her home to Richland.  She has always had a warm and loving disposition and quiet demeanor, and a face so cute it makes you smile!  Phoebe loves people and is especially fond of children. 

Sometimes she wags her tail so hard her whole bottom wiggles, so I nicknamed her Phoebe Jeebee Wigglebutt.

Gretchen is a Border Terrier.  She ran away from her home and came to live with Sebastian in November 2010.  So we do not know her date of birth or how old she is now.  She is a tiny little girl.  She loves to go for walks and chase squirrels.  She also sleeps with Sebastian every night.  Gretchen loves to have her belly rubbed.
 

Scout

Scout

Scout is a Golden Retriever.  She is named for her mom’s favorite character in To Kill A Mockingbird.  Her favorite pastimes are fishing and swimming (although she’s never caught a fish yet)  Scout hates carrots, but loves cherries and tomatoes.  She likes to eat tomatoes right from the vine (even though that makes her mom very mad!) 


 

Jack


Jack 

Jack is a Golden Retriever.  He enjoys going to the library to listen to all his friends read to him.  They are such good readers!  My mom takes me running in the desert where I get to sniff for jackrabbits, birds, snakes and squirrels.  My mom makes sure I stay away from skunks.  Whew!  
My favorite foods are pumpkin, peas and carrots and pickled asparagus.  I do not like lettuce.  Elvis, our family cat, lets me lick her bowl clean . I love cat food!
 

Mazy


Mazy

Mazy was born in Spokane in June, 2000.  Her mom got her from the pound so we do not know exactly what kind of dog she is, but we all love her just the same.  She has a big black spot on her back that almost looks like Mickey Mouse's head.  Mazy likes broccoli and carrots and loves to chase squirrels. 
  Dani, Therapy Dog           

 Dani

Full name:  Pien Ji’s Beautiful Dangerous
Nickname:  Dani

Dani is a two year old Shih Tzu who thinks she’s a princess and she loves lacy things.  However with “Dangerous” as a last name, she’s not afraid to hang out with big guys – soldiers and veterans being some of her favorite people.  She’s a sweet coquette topeople with walkers and wheelcharis; a tomboy to anyone who will toss her mini tennis ball; and a darling enchantress coaxing giggles and smiles from the shyest child or tired adult.  That’s why the middle name is “Beautiful!”

 

 Shreq
            
            Shreq

Shreq is a red Doberman Pinscher who takes his work very seriously.  He visits hospitals, care centers and libraries throughout the Tri-Cities.  Shreq loves cheese - slices, chunks, shredded, paste, he doesn't care as long as it is cheese.  He was born in New Jersey, flew to Oregon at 4 months. He became a Champion Doberman Pinscher at 11 months and moved to Kennewick at 15 months to become a Therapy Dog.  Along the way he earned some obedience titles, awards for his therapy work, and many many friends. He does many kinds of therapy work including listening to kids read stories at the library! Now he teaches by example as teams follow him around learning to be therapy dogs also.


 Malo, Therapy Dog
Malo

Full Name:  Pien Ji’s Bad to the Bone
Nickname:  Malo

Although Malo means “bad” in Spanish, this fur baby is anything but. This three year old Shih Tzu has AKC CGC, CGCA titles, and his Love on a Leash certification.  He has also earned his AKC THD title.  Malo loves his job and considers his day a success when he has put a smile on someone’s face. He brings joy to residents in assisted living facilities, Alxheimer’s units, cancer patients, veterans, and university students suffering the anxiety of semester finals.  Malo is GOOD!


 

 Hersey
Hershey

He is a Chocolate Labrador Retriever born March 13, 2010 in Idaho. He weighs about 57 lbs and eats like a horse and runs and runs and runs. He is kind of of spastic and runs into everything and everyone but he just bounces off and keeps on going. He was born with a congenital defect called Cerebellar hypoplasia, which is a disorder found in cats and dogs in which the part of the brain known as the cerebellum (which controls motor functions) is not completely mature at birth.  We immediately enrolled him a AKC Star puppy class and he graduated on Aug 8, 2010.   He was approved by TDI as a therapy dog on June 21, 2012.  We are all so proud of Hershey
