If you have a dog in your life, you already know that these sweet creatures have a knack for brightening your day.
That’s certainly the case for one elderly grandma with Alzheimer’s, who gets more happiness than she ever dreamed from the affections of a sweet dementia-therapy dog.
The elderly lady in question is Winifred Lowe, the grandmother of a young man named Richard Dawson.
Richard recently took to Twitter to share the incredible way that visits from a dementia therapy dog have impacted his grandmother’s life.
Like the lovely senior citizens who get happiness and satisfaction out of caring for newborn kittens, Winifred is at a point in her life where the little things make a huge difference.
HerAlzheimer’s make her confused and angry a lot of the time, but dogs, as we all know, are the best medicine.
Now, Winifred has a new lease on life, thanks to her cheerful new puppy friend Orla!
