Operation Inasmuch (part 4)

My "Operation Inasmuch" day was spent in three very different directions. I was the leader of the child care team taking care of the "two and under" children of the other workers. This lasted during the morning hours, then I took pictures for the media team, and last but not least... I visited several rest homes with my precious "Therapy Dog", ELMO! Elmo showed off her talents; sit, stand, dance, speak, catch and fetch- to the delight of all of the residents. She also visited each one pausing only if they continued to pet her. She even had her very on "Operation Inasmuch" t-shirt which made her feel like the special dog that she is. Elmo was a BLESSING to each person she met that day and continues to bless my life immensely.

Looks like you have been a huge blessing in a lot of other people's lives about as much as you are in mine. :)

Animal assisted therapy is a huge thing in our School of Social Work. A wonderful thing. Bless Elmo's heart!

Sounds like a wonderful week-end!

Thanks for your kind words on my retirement post!

Dawn~ I think we've always known how theraputic our personal pets are... so why did it take this long for us to figure out how theraputic pets can be for the elderly, sick, etc...??? I love to see the joy that Elmo brings to others.

Retirement is going to be great... I can't wait to hear all about it!

Those therapy dogs are just wonderful. When i was visiting in hospice with my friend they had dogs that would come in for the patients. My friend, Betty looked so forward to that. Even if she was asleep she tell us to wake her up. how wonderful that you do this. Sandy
