While she was boarding with me recently, I took Poppy to Stoneswood Residential home in Delph to visit some of the elderly residents there.
Stoneswood is very dog friendly and encourage pet visits. They appreciate how much joy a visit by a friendly dog can bring to their residents, some of whom are living with dementia or very frail and unable to get around independently.
Straight away, Poppy seemed to know instinctively how to engage with the residents, sitting at their feet and letting them stroke her - in return for biscuits of course!
She was so calm and gentle, I think she could be a therapy dog ❤️
