It was our very first visit with a hospice patient, and I was a little worried. Schipperkes are very active dogs, but Dreamy seems to know when she is working and is generally on her best behavior. But today she seemed more excited than usual, nearly bouncing off the walls as we entered the facility. She even tried to jump onto the reception desk to meet the receptionist! I think she sensed a dog-lover, because the receptionist gave her hugs and kisses when I put her up on the counter.
Dreamy didn't calm down much as we navigated to our patient’s floor. She tried to visit with everyone we met, and would have liked to dash right down the hallway! But when we finally arrived at the right room, Dreamy simply sniffed around a bit, then gently climbed into her lap, and quietly cuddled with her for half an hour.
