The Therapy Dogs are inspired by real dogs in shelters who have so much to give and to inspire humans with.
"There is so much love surrounding you,” is handwritten on the tag that hangs from the ivory rayon ribbon around the neck that is tied with a bow. The cute little stubby tail has a skinny white bow around it and the super duper soft body is about 14” long that is made by hand. Therapy Dogs were created in an effort to cause a shift in thinking about dogs and also about our own conditions.
Like royalty, she wears a handmade crown that has a bit of white glitter.
The wings are twigs, stars, buds and glittered sprigs to add the magic that angels are made of.
No two are exactly alike and each is a keepsake to treasure. Each one's message that is on the torn tag, is signed by the artist and sewer, Elaine Seamans. A glassine envelope is also on the ribbon around the neck that let's the new 'adopter' know of the meaning behind the Therapy Dog and also the At-Choo Foundation that helps real shelter dogs needing medical care.
This is an emotional item with the meaning behind them being crucial to touching people's hearts. If requested, a photo of a real dog (there are usually more than one) who inspired the various Therapy Dogs can be included. The other Therapy Dogs are, Scar, Senior Wise and Lumpy.
