Pet Teachers on Oprah’s SoulPancake

October 1, 2013

Who doesn’t take delight in a wagging tail greeting you at the end of a busy workday? Or, the purr of it kitten resting contently on your lap. For all of the people who understand the unique bond between animals and humans, this SoulPancake is for you.

Parker Therapy

May 8, 2012

On Easter Sunday, my husband’s mom suffered a stroke. After a week at the hospital she moved to a rehabilitation center, where she is receiving physical, speech and occupational therapy. Since we are frequent visitors, I asked if we could bring Parker. Now, he spends his weekends getting attention from staff and resident dog- and cat-people. But, he’s always willing to give Bob’s mom his brand of Cavalier nap therapy. In just a few weeks, she has already made progress. Is it due, in part, to Parker’s therapy? I bet he’d like to think so.
