Kiri King, working dog: hearing dog.





I had the privilege of greeting at Mt Albert Baptist Church this morning and greeted a very special visitor. I thought, I hope I have time to talk to her mum after church, and indeed I had and I asked permission if I could take her photo.

Kiri is a hearing dog for Celia King. Today was the first time, they came to church. Celia is Jono's mum. Jono plays the drum in Church.

Kiri is a member of "Paws in Schools" team with Outreach Therapy Pets.

Kiri loves cuddles and Ice cream from McDonalds. She was born in 2010, and a Golden collie.

Kiri, I hope you will come again, I might sneak in an ice cream.

Celia, great to meet with you. We will connect via email.

Beautiful dog!
And wonderful how dogs can be trained to help in so many ways, and they all seem to love their jobs!

There are so many "invisible" ailments. I'm sure the dog comes in very HANDY.

Aid-dogs are essential to so many people.... a good friend of mine has two... and she traines puppies to...

There should be much more gods available for people who need them and it should be mmuch easier to get one...

Have a nice day
