Tonight, all three Dals went for a holiday pet therapy visit to UPMC Passavant, dressed in their holiday finest.
As in years past, we had requests to snap pics of the dogs before we could even sign in for our pet therapy duties! Everyone loved Tess, Jazz, and Indy in their Santa suits.
If you couldn't tell from the photo above, here's a closeup of Tess wearing her Santa hat and beard! It was a big hit with the patients. For as stubborn as Tess can be, I have to hand it to the girl...she wore that hat and beard for nearly an hour and a half without any fuss at all!! I think she knew how much joy she was bringing the patients and staff in her holiday outfit.
I'm proud of the Dals for the great therapy work they do all year round, but I'm always thrilled that we can bring smiles to the faces of patients who are in the hospital during the holiday season. We are truly blessed to have the companionship of these awesome dogs!
