WW: Piranha Banana visits the Zion Early Childhood Center Pre-School & Kindergarten

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the children at Zion Early Childhood Center Pre-school and Kindergarten in Tinley Park.  We talked about what a therapy dog does in the community, my training, my favorite foods and colors and if I like to play.  Afterwards each child lined up for a special high-five from me.   Someone had asked me if my little paw gets tired from all the high-fives I give, and I can tell you I have a pretty muscular doggie arm from it  - so no.  :)  I am so used to it I can give them with my eyes closed.  I was also asked if I get paid and I explained that therapy dogs volunteer all their time. I do get treats at times after volunteering, like carrots.  But I don't expect it.  I just enjoy it.

HELLO TO ALL THE CHILDREN & STAFF FROM
THE  ZION EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER PRE-SCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN IN TINLEY PARK! 
THANK YOU FOR WELCOMING ME IN YOUR CLASSROOM, I ENJOYED THE VISIT.
 HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!

  1. That's so nice of you to visit the kids and hand out high-fives! You earned those carrots! (And maybe even a cookie or two?)

  4. You are an inspiration! I bet the children enjoyed their high fives...maybe their arms are stronger, too. It's great for them to meet a therapy dog. It will hopefully impress them for the rest of their lives.

  5. That must have been fun showing off PB! I don't like kids guess that's why I'm not a therapy dog! Love Dolly
