LET­TER OF THE WEEK

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - CONTENTS -

I for­warded the de­light­ful ar­ti­cle about the grey­hounds in SA nurs­ing homes (Who’s a good boy then? 18/7/12) to a friend in Tas­ma­nia who has a re­tired rac­ing grey­hound, Surfer. She vis­ited Patrick, a nurs­ing home res­i­dent who re­cently lost his wife of 62 years. The staff said Patrick had not left his room all week. When Surfer en­tered the room, Patrick just sat and cud­dled him and cried with­out say­ing a word. The staff agreed Surfer was the best ther­apy that Patrick had re­ceived. An­gela McKay Thorn­gate
