Another trip to the nursing home...

Oh Cathy, you and Gunner and Honey are ROCK STARS! Those photos are absolutely beautiful Bless you a million times over for doing this. I honestly can imagine what it will be like one day when I am old and feeble and in a home and not able to have a dog anymore. How in the world could I be happy... visits from dogs must be heaven for dog people in a situation like this. Your pictures brought tears to my eyes, thank you for sharing.

I agree...you're an angel for doing this and if I ever make it to a nursing home I just hope there's somebody like you around with two wonderful Golden's.

I think about this, too. I just can't imagine it.

A ton of to you, Gunner and Honey for making the nursing home a happier place to be for those that are there.

How wonderful that you and your lovely pups can spread cheer and happiness for some of your community members. I'll bet the dogs enjoy their "work"

Thank you all...We really do enjoy it. Gunner's tail does not stop wagging the whole time we are there. The workers tell me that we brighten their days as much as the residents.
