Therapy dog

When I first met Charlie I was told he would make a very good therapy dog, and he does.

He is my therapy dog. When the world seems grey, dull and pointless he is a point of colour. He is always beside me, never judging, just supporting, loving, cuddling. He sticks close and makes sure I always know I am loved and I am not alone.

Reminder: Depression is a medical condition and I am not to blame for it.

  1. Hey!! I’m weaving!! That’s my therapy. The weaving, spinning and knitting, not necessarily in that order.

  3. That is a beautiful dog. I love the idea of therapy dogs! It makes so much sense to me and I’m glad it’s becoming a better known brand of therapy.

  4. I’ve struggled with depression too. I have to agree, a furry friend alongside makes for a much better day. He looks like a real sweetie.

  7. Same reason I have two dogs. They always seem to know when someone in the house needs a bit of extra love.

  8. Hi! I just wanted to stop by and thank you for the nice comment you left on my blog a few days ago! I’ll have to stop by again, it looks like we have a common (depression) thread. And I also have a dog named Charlie! :)
