Lucy, the Therapy Dog
Lucy is a 10-year old Papillon who visits St. Louis Children's Hospital weekly to bring cheer and smiles to hundreds of children. Many times we hear seeing Lucy produced the first smiles of the day/week on those she visits. She loves her work and is anxious to go every Monday afternoon. She was trained at Support Dogs, Inc. in St. Louis in the T.O.U.C.H. Therapy dog program. In the 5 years she's been a certified therapy dog, she has visited nursing homes, Shriners' Children's Hospital and now, St. Louis Children's Hospital.
