PORTLAND - Keeping track of the days of the new year can be fun for dog lovers.
A Portland-area hospital is out with a new calendar featuring a month by month salute to its four legged physicians.
“It’s absolute love and therapy,” said volunteer Marcy Lowy of what her dog Willie provides at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.
Six days a week, you’ll find some of the nine dogs in the program greeting visitors or comforting patients.
“There are times when they want Willie to jump right up on the bed and then they just melt,” remarked volunteer Richard Lowy.
