If you don't already know me I live in New york. Last winter my grandma lost her house because she could no longer live by herself and she had to go into a nursing home. I want to make her feel more at home in that place. It is nice, but it's still lacking love. I am planning on adopting a dog in the next year or so and i am saving every last penny I have so that i am prepared for the expenses this dog will have. In the mean time, I want to start raising money so that once I adopt my dog, I can pay for her classes to become a certified canine good citizen.There are many classes she needs to take (which include basic obedience training and the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy program) before even considering taking the test. I've been doing research for a long time now and I have many books on how to train therapy dogs also. This is so important to me because not only could the dog put a smile on my grandmas face, but also everyone in the home. I also would like to go to other nursing homes on long island and other places that would benefit from therapy dogs.Please help me save so I can start my dream, and I can tell you our happy ending.
