Grace’s Therapy Visit

So last night was the first of three practicum visits required by the therapy group that Grace and I are involved with. As soon as we walked into the hospital’s front area, there were ooohs and aaaahs from people. She pranced her way into the elevator and rode it up to the fourth floor (Continuing Care) like a pro. We met the Recreation Therapist, who promptly fell in love with Grace, and then started making our rounds.

Grace did very well, and I’m not sure if it was the residents or the staff that enjoyed her visit more 🙂 She met around ten residents, and she wowed almost every one of them. With one lady, she laid down on her bed and snuggled into the lady’s legs. The lady was very happy about that. She showed off her “high five” trick, and gave out a few kisses (not too many though).

Our visit lasted about 45 minutes or so, and Grace was pretty tired by the time we headed back to the car. She handled everything like a pro, and I’m looking forward to our next visit!

  1. Way to go Gracie!! I have been on the recieving end of a therapy dogs visit with my son, and I can’t express enough how 5 minutes with a therapy dog can make the whole day so much better! I bet people were talking long after Grace walked by them about how beautiful she is!

  2. Awwwwww, what a pro. Sounds like she enjoyed the visit as much as the patients did.
