Comments from Chris in Wales

I have received such good feedback regarding your visit – everyone is “secretly” hoping you will all be back again next year. 

You and the Babies bought so much joy to everyone who got the pleasure to meet them. We have had staff here for over 26 years and up who commented that they had never ever met any of the Dogs, in particularly beautiful Max and Yogi. 

I cannot reiterate enough how soul cleansing it was to be around you guys again.

Mandela Day event at Turffontein Primary School

From Jenny Shone, Animal communicator

I also had such a privilege of being invited to go with Sue and her ‘’Joy Dogs’’ to Deansgate, the retirement home my mom lived in a few years ago. I will never forget the expressions of the faces of all the residents as the dogs walked in. We sent two hours there and everyone was in awe (including me) of these amazing dogs and the tricks they showed us all.

Thank you so much Sue, Jasmine, Yola and Oscar for the amazing work you do. I feel rally honoured to be your friend.

From Marianne

Hi Sue, you just never cease to amaze me with the work you do. Its great to see.

From Pat

Thank you for all the joy you have given to the residents at the Hamlet and particularly to Cally and us.

Dear Sue

Thank you so much for today.  I just loved it and so did all the other folk.  So many people came to me afterwards and said that this was the best entertainment that I have got for them.  I have just read the little book….. “Life with Oscar” ……….. so enjoyed it and will let others read it as well.

Dear Sue and friends,

Just a short note to say thank you so much for thinking of our Home on Mandela Day. You guys, and especially Jazmine, Oscar and Yola really made made our day!

The entertainment by the Joy Dogs was a TREAT not to be forgotten any time soon. I wish to also thank you for the copies of Life with Oscar – very interesting reading indeed.

Acres of Love Thank you for visiting Acres of Love yesterday.  The children and all had a great time with your dogs. It is our mission to provide a stable environment for the children in our care and your visit assists with this as part of the residential care model that we have. (and from Carol) Thank you both so much for the lovely presentation today. The kids (and adults) thoroughly enjoyed it.  I was amazed that so many of them wanted to come brush the dogs. They were in awe of these wonderful dogs, and I can imagine that tomorrow at news time it will be all about the dogs and what


Old English Sheepdog owner and advisor in Canada – Your kids look pretty darned good so you have obviously found brushes that work well for the combination of you and them.  As the Plush Puppy brushes obviously work, keep using them. Congratulations and please keep up the great work, it is so rare to see a multi-Bobtail owner keep all their dogs in full coat!!

Ahh Sue, your doggies are just the most divine creatures! Thank-YOU so much for visiting us and sharing their JOY here J

I had a brief squizz at Oscar’s book over the weekend €“ how beautifully you€’ve done it!

The photos are fab – I’m going to post on our facebook page today and I’ll send you the link.  Will tag your page and include the website details so our fans can visit and have a look at what you guys do.  Let’s hope this spreads the word even further and creates lots more interest.


Looking forward to seeing you all again!
