Good Morning Sue,

It was absolutely a wonderful day yesterday.  The residents enjoyed it very much.  When you left for the Alzheimer’s unit, I asked them whether they would like to have the dogs here again.  And it came like a choir:  “Yes, Yes,  Please!”  You should have noticed that some were in tears because of the dogs, not because they were afraid of them, but out of joy.  They are really JOY-DOGS. Even the staff, and particularly Christa enjoyed it a lot!

We intend to get them regularly in future.
