Walker Awarded St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog of the Year

Walker receiving the St. John Ambulance 2017 Therapy Dog of the Year Award.

At eight years Walker is a wonderful companion whose right to socializing and exercising gets me out, even in poor weather. He still thoroughly enjoys visiting Yarmouth Hospital and anywhere else he thinks he might meet someone who would pat him. Most importantly, his sense of humour closely matches mine and so life is good.

RudyI wanted to give you an update on Rudy.* After her illness last fall, she is now back up to her normal weight, her usual activity level and her bubbly personality. Two things, however, have changed. She sleeps a little more through the day, which may be normal for a five year old dog. When she was her sickest covered her with blankets to keep her warm. Now she still likes to sleep covered in a blanket. She has perfected the art of getting up off her bed with the blanket over her like a horse blanket. Most times she can make it to the window to check things out and get back into bed with the blanket still on!

Rudy is an important part of our family and gives us great pleasure.


* Rudy was very ill in the fall of 2014 from a tick borne infection, not Lyme disease but with similar autoimmune effects.  With loving home care, and astute veterinary guidance, Rudy’s family was able to see her thru what could have been a fatal illness.
