Pet Therapy

I found this article about the benefits of animal therapy in the newsletter for St. Mary of Providence. My aunt, Mary Ann, has Down syndrome and has lived at St. Mary's for about 20 years. I don't know if my Lottie is suited for this kind of work - she has a lot of calming down to do - but just more proof that animals can forge a link and help us in so many ways, both physically and mentally. I hope that everyone can read it - I had to reduce the size so that I could post the article.
