We started out the New Year by visiting folks in the hospital on New Year's Day. I realized that not only did the patients look forward to our visits, that the staff did too! We quickly learned the employees that wanted visits from Rissa and looked for them each time. We made 4 visits this month and got Timber's second TD Inc evaluation done. I had met a local librarian on a fall hike in Acadia National Park and she suggested that I look into becoming a READ team with Rissa. I had never heard of a Reading Education Assistance Dog. Our local library had a team - I contacted them and started the testing to become READ certified.
