Therapy Dog At Work

Today, Mom and I were reminiscing about my therapy visits in at The Laurel's of Willow Creek. The Laurels is a home to many seniors, but occasionally we see rehabilitation patients and younger patients with debilitating diseases.

Once while I visited, I met a young woman. She was a beautiful woman who could no longer walk or care for herself. With her drawn hands she reached for me. As I snuggled close, she began talking to my Mom with a broken voice. This young woman was plagued with Multiple Sclerosis. Mom and I were amazed by her countenance. She glowed with excitement as we visited.

While visiting we were told she had German Shepherds at home. She loves our visits and I, too enjoy seeing her great big smile. We snuggle and cuddle and Mom often allows her to give me special treats. I am always gentle taking them from her. When I take them she becomes excited and giggles loudly.

Just another precious day in the life of a therapy dog.

Woofs and Wags,

Thanks for sharing another precious visit of yours! It amazes me how God uses you and your brother to bring back some warm and fuzzy feelings to the lives of the patients who can't keep their pets with them.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
