Therapy dog volunteers at Methodist Richardson Medical Center

Wave a paw at Methodist Richardson’s furry, four-legged volunteers! Tina, Ryan, Colby, Gabby, Kirby, Millie, and Dawson come from the Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs, a nonprofit organization that brings a little canine cheer to Dallas-area hospitals, assisted living facilities, nursing homes and schools.

Trick or Treat!

Therapy dogs Truffles (Shih Tzu), Chloe (long-coat Chihuahua), and Sadi Loo (Shih Tzu) treated patients, visitors, and staff to some Halloween fun during their hospital rounds at Methodist Richardson Medical Center on Wednesday afternoon.

Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs Dawson, Guido, and Tina brought some Thanksgiving cheer to Methodist Richardson. The dogs enjoyed a veritable feast of petting and attention from hospital patients, visitors, and staff, for which they were very thankful.

Summer 2011

Unfazed and inspired by the relentlessly sunny weather, Carmen and Truffles brought a mellow yellow vibe to their hospital visit. Their dose of special canine sunshine lightened spirits and brightened the day for Methodist Richardson patients and staff. I guess this gives new meaning to "Where life shines bright!"

Therapy dogs Hunter and Tina decided that the best way to handle the North Texas summer's extreme heat was to pretend they were just chilling out with the "puparazzi" in Hawaii while they visited Methodist Richardson Medical Center.
