An Outdoor Therapy Visit
Thursday night, Dad took Nanuq to Central State Psychiatric Hospital for Dog Therapy. Mom and I stayed home. I am still experiencing pain in my knees and hips when I lay on the hard floors in hospitals or other places.
On this visit, the staff decided to take the patients into a fenced courtyard. Dad was able to allow Nanuq to freely visit with patients. He unleashed Nanuq and he played with the patients.
Both Nanuq and Dad shared with Mom and I when they returned home. The outdoor visit was enjoyed by both Nanuq and the patients.
A change of scenery is good for both humans and furry children. God uses all things to work in our lives. Nanuq's visit reminds us to think outside the box when helping others. I am thankful the staff was able to give the patients and Nanuq the ability to fellowship in a different environment.
