We are so excited to announce that our sweet sable and white male, Gentle Prairie Star, has gone to live with his sister, Lady, at Divine Acres Ranch to train to be a therapy dog at Elijah’s Retreat. Elijah’s retreat is a wonderful ministry that is just getting started to help support families with autistic children. The retreat is set in the Piney Woods of East Texas and will be a place where families can come to get away from hectic life and enjoy some quiet time in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The retreat is in the process of building their first cabin. They have 2 full size horses. They also have 4 miniature horses that have been going to therapy training to work not only at the retreat, but also at area hospitals and nursing homes.
Braveheart’s Prayer, one of Wrap’s boys, went home today. They are considering obedience and/or agility competitions for him and may him enter him in some confirmation shows. That was all cool to me, but I got even more excited when I found out that he will also go to therapy training. They visit nursing homes with their church regularly and want him to be able to go with them to encourage the people they visit with. I am so excited to know that another of our babies will be doing their part to make the world a better place!
I just found out that another one of the puppies we are raising is going into therapy work. Foxy (one of Wrap’s girls) is going to live with a lady who teaches an animal therapy elective at a college near her home. Foxy will be going with her to class to be a living example of therapy training and then will get to use her skills!
One of Honey’s sons, Bentley was featured recently on his local news channel for his work as a therapy dog. You can see Bentley here:
We also found out that one of Honey’s pups will start therapy training as soon as she goes to her new home in a couple of weeks! Her name is Lady and she will be mainly working with autistic children. To learn more about Lady’s new home and their wonderful work with autistic children and their families, visit
