This picture was taken yesterday at one of the facilities we visit. This elderly man was sitting separate from all the others, mostly women, with his head down and he was a bit unresponsive. A new team member said to me, "Let's go visit him." There's a way that you position your dog next to somebody in a wheelchair. The man inched his hand a bit closer to Ansel and I put Ansel's ear in his palm. The man slowly moved his hand to Ansel's head. Therapy dogs help with movement as well as emotions. Therapy dogs change lives.
