A Team of Dogs in Pajamas Visited Chronically Sick Children in the Hospital

There is nothing worse than having to spend Christmas alone as a child, and on top of that in a hospital. However, the staff of one of the institutions came up with a simple but great idea how to give their patients a little joy.

For many of the facility’s “little charges,” it was a rare moment of returning to normalcy and a substitute for the warmth of a family home

Elsa, Pinto, Pluto and Bailey were the names of the dogs that gave the children a surprise. They are specially trained dogs, full of kindness, calmness and understanding
