A Therapy Dog’s Tale

therapy dogs

therapy dogsNancy Diepenbrock started training her golden retriever named Quincy to become a therapy dog ever since her retirement started. The woman is energetic but that is all thanks to her dog. Every time the woman will visit her pooch, Quincy will lean his body against Nancy then the dog puts his head on his owner’s knee.

The woman explains that it is amazing how many people will open up to a therapy dog. Nancy visited a woman before who had trouble verbalizing things. However, when the woman started petting Quincy, the words “oh, good dog” came out.

Nancy states that dogs can touch your hearts in places that you did not know had an emptiness.
