Audie and Maggie are still working as a therapy team. We go three times a week to Sarah's Hope, a shelter for homeless mothers and their children. We work with the children in the reading program. The children love having him there and he has helped several of them overcome their fear of dogs. Once a week we go to Keswick Care and visit with the seniors, most of whom are in wheel chairs. We usually help wheel them from bingo to chapel services then visit with them in the chapel while they wait for the minister to arrive. Audie has many devotees in both locations. He gets a bath at least once a week so that he smells good for his visits. Something that is especially important this time of year since Audie likes to go swimming in the pool frequently. Too much swimming along with humid weather can make him odiferous.
