This is Bella in her "disguise" as a Therapy Dog. My husband had a stroke in March and was in the hospital for over a month. He was missing Bella, so the nurse told me to just bring her up to his room like she belonged there. I put a bandana on her just like the official therapy dogs wear and we walked into the elevator like we had done this a thousand time before. (Of course a she wasn't too keen to get in the elevator again!) It was a happy reunion. Now she visits him in the nursing home regularly, but gets restless in his room, knowing there are other people out in the halls that need her kisses and attention more than he does!
