All About Me

Hi, my name is Maisie. I live with my Mom and Dad, my uncle, Max who is also a Golden Retriever and my kitty named Matilda.

I was born in Sharpsville, PA and had lots of brothers and sisters. One day my Mom and Dad came to my house to see me. When my Dad picked me up, I couldn’t resist covering his face with tons of kisses which caused them to fall instantly in love with me. I was too young to go with them that day but they said that they would come back for me. When they came to pick me up, they brought another dog named Max with them. It turns out that my mom was Max’s sister and that made him Uncle Max. We all played together and had a great time.

The next thing I knew, we were going for a long car ride to my new forever home. I liked my new home. There was a nice big yard for me to run and play in and everyone was so nice to me. And there were lots of bunnies and squirrels for me to chase around. And if that wasn’t enough, they would take me to their camp in the woods where there were tons of new smells and things to explore.

While I was still a puppy, I started going to this great school where I learned cool things like place, sit, down, heel, over, tunnel and stay. My Mom, Dad and I had a ton of fun in school. We even played fun games sometimes and I made so many new human and puppy friends. When I was one year old, my Mom and Dad thought that I would make a great Therapy Dog, but first I had to pass the test..

Finally came testing time to see if I could become a Therapy Dog. Before I could take my test to be a Therapy Dog, I had to pass my AKC Canine Good Citizen (AKC CGC) test. I passed the test, and everyone was so very proud of me. Now for the big test that took two days to show everyone that I could be a Therapy Dog. It was a tough test but at the end of those two days, they said I passed and was now a Certified Therapy Dog. On top of passing the test, I also earned my AKC Canine Good Citizen Community and AKC Canine Good Citizen Advanced awards without even knowing it.

Ever since then, I have had so much fun going to different places and meeting so many nice new people. At these places, people are so nice to me and it makes me feel good that I make them happy. Everyone wants to pet me and they really like it when I shake their hand or give them high fives. I love this job.

I think that I’m going to be a Therapy Dog forever since I love it so much.

                                               Love, Maisie
