I had no mommy or daddy.
But I had lots of brothers and sisters.
And they all needed a home.
One day a nice lady visited all the puppies.
Some were fat, some were skinny.
Some were fast, some were slow.
Some were boys, some were girls.
Some were happy, some were sad.
Then she saw one puppy that didn’t look like any of the others.
I was very tall and had a great big smile.
No matter where she turned, I was looking at her – and smiling
She said to herself “That’s my dog”
So that’s how I found my new mommy.
I went home with her and found I also had a new sister – wow!
But I was very confused.
Why was I in a new home with a new sister and a new mommy?
I barked and barked and barked.
I jumped and jumped and jumped.
I ran and ran and ran.
And then I lost my big smile.
It took many weeks to feel safe and happy in my new home.
I started to trust my new mommy and love my new sister.
I learned how to be a good dog and be kind and loving and one day something amazing happened…
I became a Delta Therapy Dog!
Mommy took me to all sorts of places like the Library and Schools.
Children really liked me a lot and everyone smiled at me
I now know why I was in my new home with a new family
It was so I could become a Love Dog
AND THAT’S WHEN MY SMILE CAME BACK!
