Happy retirement to Owen and his owners Margaret and Cynthia! 12 year old Owen loved visiting the VA to get hugs and treats. He also enjoyed helping young readers gain confidence at the Peekskill Library. We’ll miss you, Owen and family!

We’re wishing 15 year old Rosie (and her dad Richard) a happy retirement! .
Richard says “Rosie feels it's the right time to hang up her paws and start enjoying giving commands instead of obeying commands. Rosie and I have spent 10 wonderful years together as a therapy team and during that time have made many good adult, child and canine friends. She's helped countless children get comfortable reading out loud as well as helped countless others overcome their fear of dogs. We will especially miss Eileen and our friends at the Scarsdale Public Library.”
.
Thanks for your service, Richard and Rosie!

Happy retirement, Mookie! Mookie and his mom Susan have been visiting the VA for 4 years, where veterans looked forward to seeing him and feeding him dog cookies. Susan says, "Some patients interacted with Mookie who were not interacting with anybody or anything else. Mookie loves everyone. The world is his friend. I think we made a bunch of people happy and created a few moments of joy. It was a great and fun thing to do."
.
We thank you for your years of service.

From our great upstate trainer Hanna - "These dedicated owners and their pups have been with us for a total of 11 weeks - through Therapy 1 and tonight graduating from Therapy 2 class. They are now certified therapy dog teams through The Good Dog Foundation and will soon be making official visits to partner facilities in our area. So proud of team Thandi, team Magpie, and team Sancho!"

A huge thank you to The Innovative CPA Group, LLC and Kristen Gilfeather! To celebrate their grand opening, the organization held a random drawing in which the winner could choose a charity of his/her choice to receive $500. Kristen was chosen and was kind enough to select Good Dog as her charity! We continue to be blown away by the generosity of our community and extend our deepest appreciation to both The Innovative CPA Group and Kristen for thinking of us.

We are sorry to report that Tali, one of our longest serving Good Dogs, has crossed the rainbow bridge. Tali brought comfort to hospital patients for 14 years, only retiring this year at the age of 17. We thank her mom Diana for sharing her with us. She will be greatly missed.
