The Rewards of Visiting and
Therapy Dog Work:
Memories of Lily, Elizabeth and Evie
Dr. Patricia F. First

This story is about three of my Irish Wolfhounds who both loved and excelled at visiting and therapy dog work. Doing this work with them brought me much joy and I write about these memories in the hope that others may become interested in sharing their dogs with their communities in this way. Lily visited veterans’ hospitals and liked best the veterans in wheel chairs because they were the same height as she was and they could look in each other’s eyes and have a real conversation.
