Congratulation's to Katie & Louie. We are so proud of them. Below is an excerpt taken from Charity's Blog. Way to go!

New AKC Therapy Dog Titles: THD
Hooray Katie and Louie just received a new title from the American Kennel Club. It's THD which stands for Therapy Dog. To qualify for the title dogs must be certified by an AKC recognized therapy dog organization (TDI - Therapy Dogs International in our case), they must be AKC registered or listed and they must have completed 50 verified therapy visits. Our Newfoundlands automatically qualified because they already met all of those criteria.

Katie and I went to our favorite nursing home tonight. I always dress her up when we go there because the elderly people get a huge kick out of seeing her with ribbons in her hair. We had not visited in a while because of the heat, so Katie was super excited to see a bunch of her human friends again.

Now Katie and Louie's official names and titles are...

Wilbon's What a Wonderful World RE THD TDIA CGC
& Wilbon's Katie Scarlett O'Hara RA THD TDIA CGC

Jake's Story
 
On May 29, 2009 Jake and his brother Elwood were playing and after hearing a short yelp we all ran to find Jake on his side with his left hind leg hanging limp.  In a few hours we noticed that his left front was affected also.  The vet x-rayed and checked him out thoroughly and also another vet on the other side of town.  Nothing showed up on the x-rays.   Jake exhibited absolutely no pain whatsoever, but simply could not get up.  All the vets could think of is that he had torn a nerve ending or had a severe soft tissue injury.  After some shots for pain Jake was sent home. 
 
For nine days Jake made attempts to stand up, but could not.  He and his brother Elwood were in an ex-pen and a friend was petting and talking to Elwood and suddenly Jake stood up and took a few steps before collapsing.  From then on he steadily progressed and is now walking and running and getting stronger everyday.  He swims daily. 
 
Now one month after his injury Jake is improving every day.  He has been to three different vets and a physical therapist.  He has been X-ray from head to toe and no probems have shown up.  Everyone thinks that he has a soft tissue injury.  Outlook for him is good.  It will be a very long time recovering, but should recover.  The biggest problem now seems to be strengthening his left side.  The physical theropist gave us some simple exersizes and he does them regularly and swims most everyday.
 
See Jake doing his water therapy below.

Below is a slide show of Jake and Elwood - 12 weeks and Bubba & Remy - 6 weeks.  All the boys took a trip to the vet to get checked out.  Getting all four to the vet and back was a real production.  There are also shots taken 6/11/09 of both Jake and Elwood and Bubba and Remy.  Dr. Kaufman could not get over how big Remy and Bubba had gotten since she delivered them by C-section.

Below is a video of Robin and Bleau's pups at 11 days. 

The Bleaus brothers- Jake and Elwood are seven weeks old now.  Yesterday we made a trip to the vet to get checked out.  Dr. Durham poked us and prodded us and listened to our hearts.  She said we both are healthy little pups.  Everybody at the clinic ooed and ahhed over us and said they couldn't believe how much we have grown since we were born.
