February 24, 2012. We went on our first pet therapy visit to a school in Westfield. We were paired with two other experienced mentor teams. I was a little nervous as this was our first visit and I didn't know how Sawyer would be. I know he's well behaved but he's very attached to me and not extremely interested in other people...unless they have food :) We met the other teams outdoors first and introduced the dogs. We were working with Steven and his Doodle, Koko, who has visited the school many times and has a great relationship with the kids and Pamela with her Puggle, Daphne, who knows all kinds of tricks to impress the students. The staff and students were so welcoming and Sawyer did an excellent job. I was so proud of him! Everyone thought he was so beautiful and well behaved. Pamela and Steven were great mentors, offering advice and support on our first visit. I'm looking up to signing up for some more volunteer assignments!
