Me A Working Girl!

Wooohooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! I nose it has been a while since my last bloggy post, My Furst Year As a Therapy Pup & Looking Ahead. What happened? Well furst I spent a year doing my Nurse Nalle therapy work fur my furry own Grand Paws. He needed me efurryday to help him through his cancer surgery and treatments. I even visited him in the hospital. I think my therapy worked, since now he is all better! Woooooooowooooooooo!

Then Mama, Me, brofur Kuruk, the furamous author and poet of Haiku By Ku, and kitty sisfur Zoe, the one and only most beautiful and wise cat yoga author Shri Swami Sattvapurrrrrananda moved to Santa Barbara, CA! We wuvswuvswuvs it here, and recently I said to Mama, “Mama I am a 100% pure Alaskan Malamute (see my DNA proof of stubbornness here!), and that means I am a working breed, and this working girl wants to go back to work! WOO!


Me and brofur Ku sometimes take Mama out fur breakfast. We wuvwuvwuv out new home!

Luckily Mama agreed! Because we moved I have to do some re-certification and will start visits soon. I also want to live up to my dream of working with children, and will do some advanced graduate degree schooling in the new year. WOL!

Fur now here are some piccies of Me passing my Love On A Leash certification pawfectly! I was tested by a furry nice lady named Joan who runs The Inquisitive Canine doggy training and obedience school. Check her out if you are looking fur classes fur your pup in the Santa Barbara area. And thank youwoooowoooooo Miss Joan and Mr. Joan fur the piccies!

My Furst Year As a Therapy Pup & Looking Ahead


Lots of my dreams look like this – Me about to take off in flight!

Wooooowoooooooo Efurrybuddy! This past year has been a pawesome adventure fur me! I did and accomplished things I never ever dreamed of, but usually I dream of running, playing, flying, snow, and treats. WOL!

2014 started off with a most pawesome adventure to the Sundog Drift Ranch. Here’s me with brofur Ku of Haiku By Ku and Mama at the ranch:


Then Mama, noticing how I wuvwuvwuv efurrybuddy and bring smiles to their faces, asked me if I would be interested in going to school to become a therapy pup.

A Therapy Pup Pondering…

Me pondering about my work.

Woooooowoooooooo Efurrybuddy! Nurse Nalle here! Today I was pondering my work. As a hard working therapy pup, I visit many different places and people: hospitals, nursing homes, convalescent hospitals, drug rehab homes, and mental health facilities. I give lots and lots of wuvwuvwuv to so many through pets, and kisses, and smiles, and even tummy rubs!

But sometimes I wonder if I leave a lasting effect. I care about my patients furry much and hope that my wuvwuvwuv truly helps them to heal inside and out.

Take a look at my ponderings, and tell me if you think I leave a healing impression…
