Isabelle brings her 2-year-old dog Tucker. He’s a fan favorite at Turning Brook, especially with Marvis.“He comes and sits on my lap, and that’s the kind of pet I like that wants to do that,” said Woloszyk.It’s an easy way for Isabelle to give back and bring joy through her adorable four legged friend. “You start to get to know people and you realize how happy they are when they see Tucker, and it’s just very joyful,” said Kotwicki.After a long visit, Tucker can be pretty tuckered, but he never gets tired of bringing a smile to folks like Marvis.“I just love him,” said Woloszyk.Some additional benefits of volunteering and bringing your pet for a visit include mental stimulation, increased self esteem, and improved physical health for patients.If you would like to volunteer for Hospice of Michigan, visit their website at Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, cats, Dogs, Four-legged companion, Hospice Care, hospice of michigan, Turning BrookContinue ReadingPrevious Photo of the Day for Friday, March 8Next Art in the Loft hosts Kid in the Kitchen class to teach children how to make a practical meallast_img read more
