Introducing our standard girls…
Violet trained her first year with Cynthia Hinckly, founder and president of Bright Spot Therapy Dogs. Violet is a very quick learner and became a certified Bright Spot Therapy Dog on her first birthday. Violet loves people of all ages. She is extremely friendly and outgoing making her a perfect therapy dog. She started her therapy work with fourth graders at the Westhampton Elementary School who read books to her as part of the Bright Spot Reading Buddies Program. She also visited with residents at the Linda Manor Extended Care Facility in Leeds. Violet lives here at Berkshire Hills.
Berkshire Hills Eleanor
Sweet, sweet Eleanor! The snow white daughter of Tasha and Kiefer. Eleanor is a standard girl (22″/48 lbs) with the gentlest soul.
Her nicknames are Angel, Snowy, Mother Teresa…well you get the point, she has an angelic personality.
As usual, in the morning, I let the dogs out and they all run up the hill. Eleanor likes to come back right away and give me a special “good morning.” One morning she came back to say good morning but this time she used her leg to hug me! Oh God, I love her! Eleanor lives here at Berkshire Hills. Eleanor will retire in 2017.
