I want a dog for my own therapy. After seeing the mechanical one it fuels me to take another step to find the right one. My husband says they're work, like having children. At 65 and struggling (sometimes) mentally I can't think of a better way to get out of my head. I loved this week's shorties.
That’s great the Ruffie found a new friend!
Both of my parents are in the nursing home. My dad with dementia and my mom with a loneliness that is so deep. Maybe that dog would help both of them. I’ve brought in puppets that I have learned are deeply therapeutic and it helps.
My 92-year-old mother keeps saying she wants a dog and she knows that she wouldn’t be able to take of one. I wonder if a mechanical therapy dog would help.
Janice ~ I love the stories you share, not because they show your pain -- but because they give me comfort somehow -- even though they are foreshadowing a sad time for my husband or me. I hope you understand what I mean. Thank you! xoxo
