Visiting the nursing home and assisted living home....

Here are a few pictures from our visits. I love the one with "John" showing Honey the fish in the tank. She loves watching the fish. They bring so much joy to these people.

The first two people have Alzheimer's and they are the sweetest people. The other man is my dad in the assisted living. It's not the best picture of me... but I still wanted to share. It was from our "Honey and Gunner night".

In one of the hospitals Tess and I go, they also have fish. Tess loves them and we always take a break to watch them. The dogs look very happy!

Your pictures are precious. It's great you can bring both Honey and Gunner on your visits. Elliot and I always stop to watch the fish in the aquarium at the hospital we visit.

Just look at the smiles on the faces of the residents, Honey and Gunner are bringing so much joy and happiness to them all.

I can tell Honey and Gunner really enjoy it too, beautiful happy goldens.
