Spirit has an AKC Canine Good Citizen Title and is certified as a Therapy Dog by Therapy Dogs Incorporated. We are also approved for visits at the VA @ Togus Hospital and we’ve been going weekly to St. Mary’s Hospital here in Lewiston, visiting the Alcohol/Drug and Psychiatric Wards every Tuesday morning. One of the Therapists (shown in first picture) has told me that we’ve likely interfaced with 1200-1500 patients in the past 14 months! We’ve found the Staff appreciates her visits as much as the patients! Everyone at the Hospital seems to know her! Not bad for the “Hyper Dog” we started with 3 1/2 years ago! Thanks again for all your help. Second picture is Spirit cheering up my wife Betty when she was at Maine Med for a week about a month ago.
