Penny on duty again as a therapy dog

Penny had been wondering where one of her humans has gone, but she was relieved to discover he'd gone to a lovely place where dogs are welcome. So she's been on duty once again a personal therapy dog.

Unfortunately, he had suffered a stroke. But the good news is that he has recovered very quickly and will be home soon.

Even one day after the stroke, he was up and taking photos to remember the horrible experience. Of course, Penny wasn't allowed into the hospital.

But once he moved to the fantastic rehab hospital at Royal Talbot, Penny was welcome, even in the room beside his bed. And the grounds are wonderful for walks with a dog. From Penny's point of view, the superb features include some delectable duck poo, good for either eating or rolling in.

Subsequent to the rolling, she had a lovely bath as soon as she got home.

Subsequent to the eating, she had a nice time throwing up on the back patio!

When her human came home for a day visit yesterday, Penny was ecstatic, and rushed to her toy box to get a toy so he could play with her. She's missing him again now, but we'll be visiting during the week and walking together once again.

With warmest thoughts and wishes for the human to come home soon and safely, and for Penny to get a chance to do her bit as I am sure she would love to do!

I love it when dogs are welcome in hospitals or aged care homes. Makes for a much more homey experience. This is a lovely story, parlance.

Thanks for visiting my blog, too.
