Therapy Visiting has been a passion of mine for 5 years. I have
3 dogs, 2 black labs and 1 golden retriever.
Hi, my name is Ruth Bird. My passions are people and pet health.
I am very active with Pet Therapy visiting. I first became involved
in this work when visiting a friend in the hospital. A beautiful
Golden Retriever silently walked into the room and instantly brought
comfort. That was Tasha. Tasha and her owner became my mentors.
I visit regularly at 2 senior homes, with my black lab and
my golden retriever. My third dog is blind, although he does not seem to
health care, nutrition and dog training are of great concern to me, and I promote
all three. I have been internet marketing for a number of years now.
My three dogs are, Dukie, Benny and Nikki.
(Dukie and Benny have passed on Oct 2007 and Jan 2008) I also have
a husband, Chris. Chris is battling the monster, MS. The dogs
are wonderful company for him. Here is a picture of my husband,

But the best place to go is a senior's home.
Their eyes light up when I say
"I have brought my dog to visit today".
Talking and petting all the while,
Makes me feel good when they start to smile.
My dog gets hugs and attention
But also provides so much more.
Putting smiles on faces when there
Now I know our job is done.
