'Queen' delights residents with a Jubilee tour of nursing homes
8:40am Thursday 14th June 2012 in Letters
My 12-year-old Golden Cocker Spaniel Sophie joined in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations by dressing up as the Queen.
As my dog is a registered Pets as Therapy visiting dog, and has been for the last 10 years, she is able to visit hospitals, nursing homes etc, where she brings a lot of joy and love to both patients and residents.
Over the Jubilee weekend myself and Sophie visited Springbank and College Fields nursing homes in Barry to help celebrate the Jubilee by holding entertainment and a party for the residents.
Sophie, who was dressed as the Queen, wore a royal blue dress with red, white and blue bows, silver and pink necklace, earrings and tiara.
I am pleased to say all nursing home residents had a good time and all loved my dog Sophie dressed as the Queen!
