Pet of the Month August 2013

 

Dusty Jobling

 

Dusty Jobling

 

Dusty Jobling is our pet of the month for August for his voluntary work in the community. For the last 5 years 12yr old Dusty, a Tibetan terrier, has been a ‘Pets As Therapy’ (PAT) dog visiting Ingleby Care Home every week. He really enjoys the attention and is popular with the residents who otherwise wouldn’t get the company of a dog.

 

You wouldn’t realise if you met him, but Dusty has had diabetes for nearly two years. Mrs Jobling injects him with insulin twice a day to keep him well and bouncing. Fortunately he stabilised very well and his diabetes doesn’t hold him back at all.

 

Now it seems right for Dusty to put his paws up a bit and pass his ‘PAT’ work to a younger dog. Tashi, also a Tibetan terrier, visited us last month for his puppy vaccinations. From the looks of it, he is sure to get some top advice and support from Dusty!
