Tiffany’s Page

 

Hi ! My name is Tiffany

I am a West Highland Terrier. I was born on March 9, 2002.  Before coming to Florida in 2005, I lived in Michigan and was in training to be a show dog. But I had other ideas about what I wanted to do.  Then at the age of three I came to Florida to live with my new mom. 

After living in my new home for a while and meeting my mom’s friends, they kept suggesting that I would make a wonderful therapy dog because of my loving and comforting nature.  This idea then sprang my mom into action researching where we could be volunteers to do pet therapy.  In the fall of 2005, I became a certified pet therapy dog with Project PUP (Pets Uplifting People). 

In January of 2006, my mom and I became volunteers at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida.  Each week on Tuesday afternoon we sit and visit with patients, guests and staff making their day a bit brighter.  It’s not a secret at Moffitt that I am one of the favorites among the patients. 

I like to communicate with my people friends and dog friends. I like to write emails too. My email address is Tiffany@READingPaws.org  Write to me and I will write back!
