Personal Stories

‘I suffer from chronic pain. When the dog comes to visit, my pain disappears and I feel better for quite a while after.’


My dog and I like to walk and roam,
But the best place to go is a senior's home.
Their eyes light up when I say
‘I have brought my dog to visit today.’
Talking and petting all the while,
Makes me feel good when they start to smile.
My dog gets hugs and attention galore,
But also provides so much more.
Putting smiles on faces when there was none,
Now I know our job is done.
