Hospital Visit

The rewards of pet therapy are great, sometimes very moving.  An employee at the hospital motioned Daisey & I to come into her office today.  We must have spent 20 minutes with her, while she was petting Daisey and explaining that she had just lost her husband a couple of month’ s  ago from cancer.  It got quite emotional and I think she just needed to talk to someone who wasn’t involved in it.  This conversation all started when she asked how Daisey’s health was, since she is 11 years old.  I explained briefly about her bout with cancer last year and that opened her up.  Later on, when we were about to leave the floor, she came & gave me a hug and final pet to Daisey, saying she just had to get some things out & how much better she felt.  I know we “did good” today!  Days like today, make you realize why we do the training, the bathing and all the other things we do to keep ourselves & fur friends ready.
