REX "THE VERY BEST OF BREED" PBGV



When Lauren was looking for a PBGV companion it seemed Rex was just the right fit for her.  She respected the qualities and the needs of the breed but was also able to bring to him a new purpose and job to fulfill in his retirement from Chaparral.   We all knew Rex was a happy dog with a gentle nature but apparently he had a much higher calling than family companion, hunting hound and stud dog.  Lauren worked hard to qualify Rex to be the only PBGV Registered Therapy Dog for Adult and Pediatric patients.  
I received this note from Lauren and although I often hear of how much Rex is enjoying his work this update brought a smile to my face

Hi Susan,
Rex loves his therapy work. His tail is like a windshield wiper as soon as he get off the elevator. All the nurses, doctors and cleaning staff give him lots of cuddles and affection. It is little wonder he loves the Therapy Dog work. He is definitely a love bucket that brings such joy to not only me but to others as well. Thank-you for this wonderful dog and I just wanted to share a little part of our day with you because he is very special.

Rex and Lauren, you are both so very, very special.  Thank you to you both for making this holiday season a little more enjoyable for everyone you come into contact with.
Love,
Susan
