Pixie & I were a team with Love On A Leash for 11 years going to many places to make people feel better. That included CSSM Pause for Paws.
Back in late Nov. 2019 I was diagnosed with Leukemia. After a month in the hospital I returned home & was placed on restricted visits since I was immune comprised. Then the Corona virus hit and I was really put on lockdown. That has meant Pixie, my therapy dog is home bound also. I know she misses her calling even though she can't tell me other than looking at me with sad eyes.
So many lives have been impacted by no visits from therapy dogs across the country. Here it is almost May and we are still on lock down. It will probably be months yet before therapy dogs can go out & do their magic. Care facility, schools, libraries, & camps will be last to resume.
Pixie is 14 now, so maybe her & I will not be able to return when things reopen. 11 years of making people smile is bitter sweet.

All around the neighborhood we have these posted on mail boxes. Each is a different exercise or yoga pose. Sign says "Great to see everyone out walking! I'm posting some standing excercises [sic] to keep it interesting. Please feel free to post your own as well. Modify as need [sic] to your own ability level. ** Remember the 6 feet of social distancing! **"
Shelves like these would seemingly rotate around the store depending on the day... If they had received a shipment that day the shelves would have something on them but if it had been a few days then they would be empty. You wouldn't even enter the TP and paper towel aisle - it was not even worth it!
