Just a working dog today

A Therapy Dog's work is never done...
I have to check in and let the staff know I'm here.  They are very kind and welcoming to me.  They understand the value of my work.

I cheered up some new people and saw some old friends.  Look at the smiles I can produce.

Warmed up several laps and got lots of petting.  What a great job I have!

When I was all done I said goodbye to the staff.

Caught the elevator for mom.  Yesh mama, what happened to this shot!  You should be used to my fast action by now.

On the way out I made another new friend.

And I was pleased to help him with the door.  This is one of my favorite things to do!
It's all in a good days work   : )



  1. Ryker you are such a good boy! You are just amazing! My Oh My you have such a great job! Mum wishes that she could take me to work with her and help people like you do but Mum works in an office at the moment and even though I have been there to visit a lot I like to run around a lot! Ha,Ha! Great job!
    Love and Licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxxxx

  12. What a wonderful, purposeful job you have, Ryker!
    I bet those patients really appreciate you visiting them :)

  13. Wow, you do great work Ryker! I'm interested that you were allowed to be off-leash. When I used to take Jake, he had to be on leash all the time. That severely limited the games of fetch he wanted to play with a soft toy that he would put on people's laps for them to toss.

  14. There is absolutely no doubt about it.... You and Your mama are 1000% WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, and AWESOME !!!! Just look at all the special things you do for others!! Sending you tons of xoxoxoxox Love, Little Janie Poo

  15. Such a cute & awesome job you do!

  16. You are such a great worker! We are glad that you bring smiles to so many people that may need it :) We are also happy that you helped Bingo find a home! We hope he is as loved as you are!

  17. I must say, Ryker. You have the best job ever!

  18. Nice job, Ryker! Look at all the smiles :D


  19. I am so glad AJ from Want More Puppies highlighted this post. I have never seen an Aussie as a therapy dog before. How refreshing. Ryker you are a hard worker!
