Today we had our first nursing home visit of 2011. We hadn’t been on a visit since right after Halloween, but Riley still acted like a pro. Everybody still remembered her and she remembered them. We met a younger lady (which is strange for this nursing home because it is not a rehab facility) who really liked Riley. Riley’s favorite resident was not there anymore. She could have been in the hospital, gone home, or died. I’m unfortunately thinking the latter because she was quite sick the last time we were there to visit. 😦
I didn’t have a photographer with me and I still have concerns about the privacy issues, so there were no pictures from today’s visit. I did get a picture of Riley at home afterward in her Therapy Dogs International bandana.
She gets so excited to go to the nursing home. She knows where she’s going (or at least that she’s going to “work”) when she gets her bandana on. She started whining out of excitement when we pulled into the nursing home parking lot today.
