A neat visit

So, Richter isn't a certified therapy dog, but we do occasional visits. We got a phone call not too long ago that one of the former governors of Minnesota was requesting a visit from a Doberman specifically, and could we make a visit? Of course we said yes!

There is a little write up on Facebook for those that can access it here: https://www.facebook.com/optagehomec...type=3&theater

Here is Richter with former MN governor Al Quie:

Wow! Fame for the Richter! Where's the fortune?

Seems like that merits a piece in the local paper.

Boy, Richter must have a good temperament for TD work (as long as Sypha isn't around)!

At first look, I thought Richter was sitting next to Dick Cheney... Al Quie has a resemblance to the former VP.
How do you pronounce Al's last name? Make sure you update Al Quie's Wikipedia page, adding Richter's visit photo...

He does, generally. We'll never be officially certified, as he can't manage to pass his CGC, even, because of the "walk past a neutral dog" part. Richter just can't help himself, he always stops to play bow and invite play when we're that close to another possible NEW BEST FRIEND!!! It doesn't bother me - I figure it's a good "problem" to have...he's not obnoxious about it, and if there was just a bit more distance it would be fine, but he's just the MOST social boy you've ever met. He LOVES other dogs so very much. He's pretty odd for a male Dobe, but I'm not complaining

He doesn't mind doing visits, and "pet visitors" are allowed, so he doesn't have to be officially certified to go visit. He's visited off and on over the years, but this was definitely a highlight!

The pronunciation is "Kwee" He is a very nice man, kind, a big animal lover, as far as I know. Another friend met him many years ago when she was out riding her horse, and he was riding his. We had a really nice visit and he shared a ton of stories about his Doberman - he clearly adored her and said she was the best dog he ever owned.

Way to go, Richter!



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader. She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

Ken, this is what they shared online:

Recently our Optage team was introduced to Al Quie, Folkestone - a Senior Living Community resident & former MN Governor, during a new client visit. While visiting with Al, he requested a dog volunteer…but it couldn’t be any dog, it had to be a Doberman (Al used to have Dobermans himself and they’re his favorite &#128054. With no Doberman volunteers, we reached out to Pastor Chris Wheatley to see if he’d be willing to visit Al with his Doberman. Pastor Chris immediately said YES!

____________________________
My husband has known Al a couple of years, as he has lived in Presbyterian Homes before going on hospice, so Chris has had the pleasure of knowing him as a resident for a while. He's a lovely, lovely man. He couldn't be nicer. When we went for the visit, he talked so much about his Doberman, and what a great dog she was, the best, smartest dog he's ever owned. Wonderful with his kids, etc etc. He adored Richter, really admired him a lot.
