CAP Newsletters


 This is Felix Cubillos who with his partner Debbie brought his kindness and love to so many CAP visitations and events.  He was an intuitive soul who knew how to reach each human with his presence.  He helped us in the testing of dogs in our CAP evaluations, patiently steady through several meet and greet a strange dog in each test.  We celebrate  in gratitude and thankfulness the 6 years that Felix and Debbie were a visiting CAP team.  

​For over ten years Berkley and Catherine Offinger were an active team visiting in all CAP’s programs and venues . 
Every visit Berkley made, he gave his whole heart . He lived to love and be loved by everyone he met.  He loved his family and new granddaughter. When he was on a scheduled CAP visit, at work with Catherine ,or around his hometown, he gave his all to everyone.  The bench pictured here is outside the Falmouth Post office on Main Street, where Berkley would hold court and greet everyone!

Thank you Catherine for sharing this special dog with so many.  He will be greatly missed and always remembered . 

This is Chowdah Hunt who with his parter Susan brought his unending patience and love to all humans that he touched.  Chowdah was able to assess the human need, whether it was a child or an adult or special needs,and give just what was needed.  He worked tirelessly for CAP in our most challenging programs, our Children's program and was a constant assistant in our Training program.  He gave unconditionally to CAP for 7 years.  We are deeply grateful to Chowdah and Susan.

This page is a tribute to those CAP dogs that have passed over the Rainbow Bridge and/or CAP teams that have retired.  We are forever thankful to these wonderful beings and their handlers that gave so much to the lives that they touched in their CAP visits.  Therapy dogs are magnanimous in each connection they make with humans in need and we will be eternally grateful.

This is Ziggy Lafleur. His Labradoodle temperament enhanced his Therapy Dog qualities. He completed the CAP  training  and certification, as he celebrated his first birthday. He so loved his 14 years working in CAP with his partners Todd and Robin.  He brought his sweet disposition, calm and happy demeanor, and CAP training to nursing homes, Cape Cod Hospital, schools, libraries, and numerous CAP and community events.  He assisted with the CAP evaluations.

He was a beautiful giving soul who truly loved his time as a Therapy Dog right into his old age.  Those of us who knew 
Ziggy were blessed by his presence with Robin And Todd. We are forever grateful  their contribution and dedication to CAP.
