Charlie Allen - Great Pyrenees from Richardson Pappy's
"Charlie is a five year old Great Pyrenees. When he came to me (Jennifer Allen - Mom), he was thirteen weeks old, 23 lbs and a little ball of fluff! He is now about 99 lbs but appears larger due to all of his hair! Despite his size, Charlie truly believes that he is a tiny little lap dog. He loves to back up and sit down on my lap or cuddle next to me on the couch with his head in my lap. He is a total love!
Shortly after his first birthday, Charlie passed his test and became a certified therapy dog. Charlie is certified through Therapy Dogs Inc. and visits with the local group, Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs (www.hotthdogs.org). Charlie and I have visited at reading and school programs with children as well as area nursing homes and assisted living centers. Charlie's favorite place to visit is a local Alzheimer's care facility. It is amazing to see how thoughtful and patient he is with the residents. He really seems to understand their issues. The best part of each visit is the smiles on the patient's faces when they get to pet and hug Charlie.
Charlie has been a loyal Pappy's boy for most of his life. He loves to come and play in day-care and see all of his friends. When he is not demanding constant petting and admiration from the kennel tech's, Charlie loves to run zoomies around the room or sit in the corner near the fan and "supervise" the room. I am so thankful to have the great folks at the Richardson location. Whether he is there for the day in day-care or boarding for a week when I travel, I know that Charlie is in great hands."
