Tickle Paw Tuesday: Comforting Canines

This week’s Tickle Paw Tuesday installment is brought to you by the current pain I am experiencing after my crown lengthening procedure today. All I wanted to do was go home, bury my face in my cat’s purring side, and mentally erase the last hour of my life. This is my version of cat therapy. I declare, if someone can/has invented silent dentistry tools, they should win a “World’s Most Awesome Person” award. However, my discomfort isn’t what I want you to remember about today.

I want to tip my hat to those people and dogs who visit hospitals and nursing home facilities with the sole purpose of spreading their love and support to those who are ill, in recovery, or who are residents of a long-term care facility. These sweet therapy dogs and their amazing human counterparts can do so much for those who are frightened, sick, or lonely. Cheers to Caring Canines Therapy Dogs of Florida; we wish you years of continued success as you spread that unconditional love we all need so very much. The video highlights how easy and mutually beneficial the transference of love and comfort can be.

Happy Tuesday! Be gentle with one another.
