    Gus, my bichon x shih tzu, has been coming to work with me for over 2 years. I work nights in a Nursing Home. He loves the oldies and they return the love 3 fold. Gus is a very quiet boy, but lovable and likes nothing more than a cuddle or the chance to sit on someones bed. If one of the residents are feeling poorly or can't sleep, Gus will stay with them awhile till they feel better or go to sleep. I reckon dogs are the best therapy. Before Gus, my silky x, Oscar, came to work with me for 5 years. I had to retire him when he became diabetic and lost his sight.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    Several of my dogs have been used to demonstrate different things at work - psychology, communication skills, etc

    I think that is so wonderful. He must sooth people so much and make them smile. I would love that if I was a resident.

    I am sorry about Oscar.

    I too think that is great Dogsrule. The joy and relief dogs can give to the elderly, infirmed and lonely cannot be summed up in a sentence.
    Plus your dog is getting socialisation, stimulation and love everywhere he goes.
    A win-win situation if you ask me.
