In Memory




Flat coated retriever

52 lbs


Scout is a born retriever and would chase a ball until she dropped. Other then retrieving, she loves to lick everyone in sight and make friends with all dogs she meets (and cats too but none have taken her up on friendship yet - she keeps trying)


Practices agility every Tuesday evening and enjoys field training and retrieving ducks whenever possible.

Awards / Titles

CGC in January, 2007
Delta Certified in December, 2007

How do you know that your dog enjoys being a therapy dog?

When I pull out Scout's Delta vest, she races over and sits at attention so I can buckle it on her. She walks very proudly to the car with an extra bounce in her step. Any chance to lick someone and get attention is a fabulous day for Scout.
