Contest Photo #59286


Maelynn, age 12, shows she is a #trueleader in 4H through her experience with 4H PetPALS. Not only does she train her dog for obedience, rally and showmanship, she has completed the training and certification to be a pet assisted activities dog. Each month, she visits with residents at several nursing homes to bring joy to their lives and to interact with senior citizens. Her favorite thing about visiting seeing the smile on the residents' faces, as well as seeing how much her dog, Troy, loves to be with them. (permission from the adult in the photo was received as well)
