My mom had to take her Mother-in-law to the hospital for some infusions. While she was there, she saw a small therapy dog named Willow. She's the 3rd on on the first picture. Then she saw these pictures on the wall. Apparently this is the first hospital in Rockford to have a team of therapy dogs "Paws 4 Healing" When you're in the hospital they have a dog come and see you cuz they know that dogs can help people heal. She heard this one lady say that when she was in the hospital that all of a sudden a big Great Dane jumped on the bed to visit her. She said he was very gentle and soothing but just so BIG!!
We pups are pawfect at making peeps feel good. Glad to hear that hospitals now realise the healing powers of us furfriends!ReplyDelete

OMDs Angel Remington's brother Grayson, a Newfie too, was recently certified as a Therapy Dog. He will start working in nursing homes and hospitals in the fall. His mom says he is a very very mellow Newfie...nothing bothers him.
