This is Stanley,
Stanley's only seven months old but we like to think in the few months he's been on this planet he has brought much happiness and love into the lives of many. One such person is Peggy (Not her real name). Peggy is not so young now and sometimes her memory plays tricks so she has to live in a place with lots of help, unfortunately Peggy had an accident and for a while her arm was in plaster, this made Peggy very unhappy and even after her arm was better she wouldn't use it and wasn't as sociable as before the accident. As Peggy in her younger days had animals including dogs, it was thought worth trying some Animal Assisted Therapy. As the new kid on the block, Stanley made his entrance into his working life and boy did he not disappoint, as Stanley walks into the home, everyone he meets wants to have a big fuss and if someone does forget he lets them know and they come back to fuss him.
As soon as Stanley went into Peggy's room, the smile that came across her face was amazing. As well as showing Peggy what he has been learning such as ball in a bucket, playing dead, roll over, etc. Peggy grooms Stanley using the hand that she had forgotten to use and also enjoys holding the lead if we go for short walks. Stanley and Peggy continue to work together with Peggy achieving goals that up until the arrival of Stanley, she had been unable to do.
