Summary
As an outlet to break up the tedium after her daughter leaves for college, author Sue Halpern signed up for a therapy dog course with her Labradoodle, Pransky. Despite Halpern's anxieties about being around old people, she volunteers for a regular visitation with Pransky at a local nursing home. Pransky had no such reservations, showing a remarkable ability to relate to people -- regardless of age or physical condition. Halpern recounts heartwarming (but not overly sentimentalized) experiences with the residents, and shares what she learned from Pransky's example: restraint, prudence, faith, fortitude, hope, love, and charity. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
