Therapy Dogs

  Angel GingerPeach

* ~ * ~ * The Van Buren/Fort Smith region lost a devoted and very unique Caring Canine on May 11, 2015 when the Plumwood Posse’s GingerPeach passed away.  GP’ was approximately 12 years old (I found her abandoned in 2004) and though she experienced countless seizures due to canine epilepsy, her heart was pure joy.  For six years, GingerPeach & I volunteered as a Therapy Dog team.  We visited nursing homes and care facilities and also participated in reading events at local elementary schools.  Thank you, GingerPeach (BEAUTY & GOODNESS AT FOXMESA T-CRO-III CGC TDI), for teaching & giving generously to so many, for being so special, so kind.  I miss you, sweet Girl. * ~ * ~ *
