Benny used to work at a rehabilitation hospital weekly but now he only goes once a month but he still loves going there. Even though he doesn’t have rehab patients to work with to assist in their physical or occupational therapies, he enjoys being in that environment. Now he keeps patients company while they wait between sessions or during their workouts. He inspires them as he too had to go through therapy. And he motivates them to work hard, never give up and keep their spirits up. Sometimes he just hangs out in the lobby greeting visitors and staff members. And sometimes the staff asks us to visit someone in their room and yesterday Benny had the most special and rewarding time with one patient. This is the perfect assignment for an older dog. Benny now concentrates on his weekly work with teens at risk but once a month he really enjoys being able to lay down and just be loved on.
