Get ready to cry your eyes out! JJ, the therapy dog from Oregon, became an internet sensation overnight after a tear jerking video of her comforting a blind, elderly woman in her hospital bed was released. You can see JJ nudging the older woman’s hand, licking her and affectionately putting her paw on her arm. JJ seems to truly care for her.
JJ, who speaks her own words on her Facebook page, said the woman doesn’t have many visitors.
“I often do bed visits, though never without The Bossy One. This is a lady who has very few people to visit her. She cannot see and often does not wake up, but she did like having her hand on my fur. She was very calm during my visit. We were listening to Yeats, by the way. I was very insistent to have her touch me, more so than usual. We fell asleep later with her hand splayed on my head, both of us snoring (but no proof of that!) I sure can be silly at times, but I also know when to be quiet and present. Her caregivers were very appreciative when they saw this video.”
Therapy dogs can be life changing to many people suffering. We appreciate you here at Digital Doggy Daily. Thank you!
