Troupe Member of the Month - Allison Triplett and Addison
Allison has been a dedicated member of the PAWSitive Therapy Troupe since 2017. Her canine partner is “Addison” a 5-year-old Golden Retriever. Allison and Addison have been dedicated volunteers at Villa St Benedict Senior Living Village in Lisle. They also enjoy elementary school and library “Read With Me” visits whenever Allison’s work schedule permits.
Allison and Addison made their first appearance in the PAWSitive Therapy Troupe’s “Canine Nutcracker” 2018. Addison was a “Soldier” in the epic battle between the Nutcracker’s Soldiers and the evil Mice. They delighted audiences young and old in this classis holiday ballet with a canine twist!
Here is what Allison had to say about “Addison” and her PAWSItive Therapy Troupe experiences:
"Addison really loves the school or library visits where she has the children read to her. She loves lying on the floor next to them and loves belly or butt rubs from the children. Addison has a great temperament and loves attention. When I pull the bag from the closet where her therapy vest and other therapy items are kept, she smiles, wiggles and can't wait for me to put her therapy vest on her. She knows she's going someplace special and will get lots of loving and pets from people who seem just as excited to see her as she is to see them. After our visits, she always comes to sit with me with her head on my lap, which tells me that she enjoys what she does with me. Those moments warm my heart."
On behalf of all of us in the PAWSitive Therapy Troupe, thank YOU Allison for your years of devoted service!
