Thanks for stopping by, I enjoyed that when I was in the hospital. (My visitor was actually a Great Dane )
One time I did 21 laps.
He’s a good doggie!
Awe! I love this! Makes my day!
Is that counting the times at the water bowl?
Strange, it doesn’t look quite like Moonkey’s dog. Love this strip today ❤️
My dog Kitty always meets me when I get home from work. Her smile and excitement makes my day!!
I could easily do 40-50 laps a night. Only 20 would be a slow night.
Their visits seem to be way too short.
All dogs/cats are therapy dogs/cats. They’re just not officially recognized as such.
Sweetest, kindest comic today
That’s so sweet!
Love it! I absolutely love this one. Thanks for the sweet moment.
My dog on an adult’s lap would look much like that. Content, knowing she is doing a good job and that she will see many people each time she goes to work. Some will be new patients, and all will become her good friends, and some will be return patients or staff, and she will delight in seeing them again. Therapy dogs calm stressed and scared patients, entertain bored patients, and often some extra comfort to those who really miss their own pets at home. We generally go with the same dwarf Golden Retriever for every visit. Sometimes we go to see the same patients, sometimes we alternate rooms. If I go in a room with my beagle and the person mentions their golden at home, I flag down the other handler and she brings her golden, or vice versa. If patients are very stressed, we take extra time and sit and talk with them. Both our dogs are excellent with hospice patients. Having a working therapy dog is very rewarding, and having one who really loves her work is absolutely amazing.
Thank you to Mark Parisi for today’s comic. It says so much about the work of therapy dogs and how the dogs know they have done a great job for many people.
❤️ My eyes are leaking.
