Bacon and I mainly visit local hospitals and schools when specifically requested. Bacon does her best to share joy & brighten people’s days.
Our visits create very special moments as hospitals can be confusing, chaotic places with lots of faces coming in and out of a patient’s room with their days often including some unpleasant or difficult care provided by staff.
When we get to change that up and bring a [big] beautiful dog into the room, patients get excited. They are able to pet Bacon and share emotions with her or just enjoy the moment. Bacon happily trades sad emotions for a puppy smile.
Family members see their loved ones happy and relaxed and Nurses and Doctors notice their anxiety lessen. There have even been a few times patients have walked with Bacon up and down the hospital halls for their physical therapy sessions.
Bacon makes a big impact.
