Anabell Gilliland sent us this photo of Yukilele von Coconut, "Yuki" for short. She is a 2-year-old German shepherd dog and lives in Clifton. She has been with the family since she turned 8 weeks old. Yuki has all kinds of personality and all kinds of energy. She also has all kinds of smarts and just received her Canine Good Companion certificate. This week, she will start her training to become a Therapy Dog. “We hope that she will eventually be able to visit children at local hospitals, participate in library reading groups, and maybe even work with children with special needs. We are very proud of Yuki for working hard and focusing,” said Gilliland. Yuki is pictured here with Sonny Madsen, the owner of Sit Means Sit dog obedience, where she goes for training.
