Sharing and Caring Paws

Karen mentioned to me that I should bring our dog to the nursing home that she works at. I thought it was a great idea and agreed to bring him over there the next week. I picked a day I had off and headed over to Hopkins. I don't know who had more fun, the residents or Karen. She enjoyed her time sharing Bandit with the staff and residents where she works as a Certified Music Therapist.
Everyone loved to see him and it was equally fun for me to finally see where she works. I got to see her office and some of the equipment she uses with the residents when they have a therapy session with her. I could tell she loves her job and the staff really like having her as an employee.
I found great satisfaction and pride seeing how Karen is so relaxed with the residents, knowing all their names and making sure that everyone that wanted to pet the dog got to do just that. We ended at noon, she punched out for lunch and we swung by Jimmy Johns for a quick sandwich. I think Bandit had fun too even though he didn't get to order anything.
