Was this a true story? Something tells me it is. Having worked my entire career in nursing homes, I have seen how crucial "pet therapy is." Being an animal lover - I especially enjoyed those visits as well.

I too have witnessed the resident's faces lighting up, and the responses from some "quiet ones" was astonishing. God's creatures, meek, smart and loving. Who can ask for anything more?

I loved this story. Thank you so much. And, that poor Italian lady - I hope there is a "translator" there to keep her from isolation.

Great job...God Bless you~

I loved this. I often thought of seeing if my dog, Raven, could be a therapy dog. She got hit by a car nearly two years ago, leaving her back two legs partially crippled. That might make her a good therapy dog for nursing homes. Good job on this tender story!
What a beautiful and tender story of a therapy dog named Belle. You truly can be proud of such an animal. I've always said that we should take lessons from dogs as far as love goes. We could learn a thing or two from them. Thank you for sharing such an inspiring story. God bless.

First, let me commend you for a super creative title. Your article flowed well and was easy to follow. Minor point: You began several sentences with the word Belle. An easy fix could have been for ex: "With the ease of..., Belle breezed through..." This, however, takes nothing away from a well-written, warm story that
highlights an important role our canine friends play in our world.
A story of warmth and a joy to read. Well done to you and Belle.
