WEEK FORECAST, NEXT. (((HAPPENING IN WNY OPEN))) WE KNOW DOGS ARE NOT ONLY MAN’S BEST FRIEND, BUT THEY ALSO OFFER COMFORT AND REDUCE STRESS.

DAISEE AND ANTHONY ARE BOTH STUDENTS AT THE BAKER HALL SCHOOL….. AND THEIR FAVORITE PART OF THE DAY IS PETTING THIS SWEET THERAPY DOG, SHERMAN. 8:57:24- ((I LIKE SHERMAN THE MOST.)) 8:58:40- 8:58:46 ((HAPPY HE CHANGES MY MOOD, BRIGHTENS MY DAY. HE’S PLAYFUL.)) HE’S JUST ONE OF SEVERAL DOGS THROUGH THE BAKER VICTORY SERVICES THERAPY DOG PROGRAM. 6:56:13- 6:56:26 ((WE SERVE A VARIETY OF YOUNG CHILDREN, TEENAGERS, AND ADULTS WITH A VARIETY OF DISABILITIES AND IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO THEY ARE, THE DOGS COME IN AND THEY REALLY JUST WORK WITH THEM.)) ((EACH OF THE DOGS HAVE DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES, ALL 3 OF THESE GUYS ARE PRETTY GOOD AT WORKING WITH KIDS BUT SOME DOGS ARE BETTER SUITED FOR DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENTS.)) 5:53:40- 5:53:51 ((BAKER IS MY YELLOW LAB AND HE’S A LITTLE BIT MORE HIGH STRUNG SO HE DOESN’T SEEM TO DO AS WELL IN HIGH STRESS REALLY ACTIVE BUSY ENVIRONMENTS.
