"Woof, Woof", my name is Caz and this is my owner, Susan Ferriman Jenkins. I have come today to tell you about my career, as a facility working dog.
Because I am a working dog I wear a special tag to get into my facility each day, just like your teacher wears a special tag to get into school each day.
This is my vest and I wear it to work. I know when my vest is on I must be responsible, respectful, and safe. Just like you, I must remember and follow these rules all the time. I also carry other important things in my vest; my business card, my work tag, and a plastic bag to clean up after myself. I am very proud to be able to wear a vest like this.
When I go to work, I am a companion to sick children. I get up on their beds and snuggle and comfort them. Everyone needs to feel comfort, especially when they are feeling sick. I never give the children sloppy wet kisses because I know I must be safe around them, and careful not to hurt them. I do love to kiss and play, but only when my vest is off. Did you know that I can reach up and open an automatic door for them? I am very faithful as I follow them through the hospital.
I always stay very close and attentive when I am out walking.
But sometimes I am asked to stay. Even though I can't be with my owner, my eyes never leave her sight. I must watch faithfully all the time.
I wait right where I am told to until my owner returns to my side.
I want all of you, my new friends, to know that I have worked very hard ever since I was very small. It took lots of hard work, but I did it! Now I can be with children and help them feel happy when they are having a hard day. And it sure feels good
to put smiles on their faces!
And now it's time for me to say good bye and it was such a pleasure meeting you first "paw" - I mean- hand!
