I’ve retired.

Hello Everyone.  It’s been woofly long since we did blogging last.  We have had this and that since then, and now I have made a big decision.  What do you think it is?

ずいぶんと長い間ブログを休んでいましたが、その間いろいろあり、この度Cocoはセラピードッグ活動から引退することになりました。

Yes, I have decided to retire from Pets As Therapy.
I have worked as a therapy doogie for nearly 5 years and during this time I met lots of lovely ladies and gentlemen.  And also I had quite a few very memorable breakthroughs.  Each one of them is very precious memory for mummy and me.  If we were still visiting the old residential care home it would have been difficult to quit.

セラピー活動約5年。その間、たくさんのお年寄りのみなさんに可愛がっていただいて、思い出深い経験もたくさん。いままで行っていたホームが閉鎖にならなければ止めるのは難しかったかもしれないけど、新しいホームに変わったところなのでその点は気持ち的に楽。

The reason of my retirement is not because I am 10 years old or the old residential care home was closed down.
The reason is……

で、いろいろあったやらセラピー活動を止めるとか書いてますが、理由は私が目出度く図書館でパートで仕事をすることになったから~。いろいろっていうのはただたんに就活が大変だったってことだけです。図書館なんて「こんにちは」「さよーなら」って言ってるだけって言った人がいるのですが、サリー州の図書館は違います。ご興味あるかたはリンクでサービスの数々をご覧くださいませ。ネットワークでサリー州の図書館がすべて一丸となって動いてます。

Our mummy got a job.  She is now working for the library.
It’s a part-time job, so mummy can spend enough time with us in the morning and then she goes to work while we are having our beauty napnap and then then she comes home by our dindin time.  Also, the library is closed on Mondays so mummy and I can go to my Monday agility class.  What a perfect part-time job she got!

Mummy tried to continue our visiting to the new residential care home, but oh my woof!  There are woofly lots of things to learn for mummy.  Someone said “Those library people are just saying Hello and Goodbye” but they are saying and doing more than that.
You can see https://www.surreycc.gov.uk/libraries   if you are interested in what mummy is getting into.

Anyway, do not worry, mummy. We look after the house while you are struggling to learn things at work.

私のパートは午後数時間。しかも月曜日休みだからアジのレッスンが続けられるし、お散歩して、ワンコがお昼寝中に仕事に行き、晩御飯の時間に帰れるという最高の条件。Coco、シルキー、私の留守中はお昼寝しつつ家を守ってちょうだい。そして最近行きはじめていた老人ホームですが、コーディネーターさんによると、そのエリアに住んでいるボランティアが結構いるのですぐに代わりが見つかるとのこと。全ていい感じでおさまって良かった良かった。

And also , don’t worry, everyone.
I contacted to the area coordinator lady and she said there are a few people living near the new residential care home so she would be able to find our replacement very quickly.
The lady and gentlemen at the home will be fine.

Love Coco and Silky
