therapy dog

My grandpa isn't doing as well as we wish he would be. Sometimes his words don't make sense, he sleeps alot, he's very weak, he sits in a wheelchair and has a hard time feeding himself.
Maybe I should go see him in the nursing home. I could run around the wheelchairs and eat the food that falls on the floor and liven things up a bit. What do you think? Should I go for it?

Oh Petra...you should totally go. I bet you would not only make your grandpa happy, but lots of other grammies and grampies too! Give Motch a big lick for me...I bet she needs it about now.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Go for it Petra! You're small enough to sneak in, and we're sure your Grandpa would be thrilled to see you. In the meanwhile, keep an ear out for when you mom comes home late and needs a wiggly greeting :-)

YES! Please do it, Petra.
Go see your grandpa, sit on his lap, give him wet kiss and tell him that you love him. Please do visit other residents near by too, your presence will be a big hit!
Muahhhh!

But of course you should go! Lots of tummy rubs potential, not to mention how many folks you'd make smile.

Hope your grandpa--and the rest of your family--feels better soon!

Hi -

Our names are Levi and Clyde. We are boston terriers and we love to visit the nursing home. We get to see our grandma and lots of other grandmas and grandpas. It is the best time. Plus they are messy eaters so if you go right after meal times there are snacks everywhere!

Poor Grandpa sounds as if he might have had a stroke. You could be the best medicine for him. Go, go, go and take Tad and Fig also.

Sweet Petra!

I think it's a great idea for you to go liven up your grandpa's day. But, you should know that in that photo you look more like you are hatching an evil plan for world domination than getting ready to administer Petra Therapy.

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Hey lady! Big Pupi was working at the hospital today. Maybe he can give you some pointer?

(He's saying that you can't eat ANYTHING off the floor or it's Naughty Dog time. What fun is THAT??)

We're hoping gramps is better soon.

Poppy said...

You should definitely go for it! Nursing homes love dogs! Just be careful that no one rolls over your tail.
