    I love these! I’m an animal person so there really isn’t much you could put up with pets that I wouldn’t love. Along the lines of that Great Dane and the baby, animals (dogs in particular) are used at our pediatric facility all the time for the kids. There is a program called Happy Tails that accepts well-trained, well-socialized dogs to come to the hospital and make rounds visiting patients and families for comfort. Also, at our sister hospital, there is a Golden Retriever that is used for comfort measures for children across the hospital during IV sticks, invasive procedures, scans and anything else that may be frightening for a child. The dog has been known to actually get up on exam tables and lay next to scared children. Great, entertaining videos!

    I don’t have a dog and my cat really does not do tricks. But after a long day at work, there is nothing like loud, roaring purr and a good kitty cuddle to take away the stress. He is ALWAYS there for me. I would not trade him for anything.
