Congratulations Gracie! Our golden girl is now a Pet Partners Therapy Dog after passing her evaluation at Positive Paws Dog Training School . We've already got a few visits under our belt and look forward to sharing the love throughout the Hudson Valley. So far we've met some wonderful women at a community residence, hung out with at a children's home, and have been read to by  simply scrumptious kindergarten class. Not bad work if you can get it!
