Meet Molly the Pony, Kaye and Linda Blick



My friends gathered to visit the Walter Reed Veterans Hospital during the holidays. Molly and Linda Blick from Tails of Hope Foundation, Inc. have alot in common with the disabled veterans. They are also amputees. Kaye, Molly's caregiver (mom) traveled with the pony from New Orleans to meet with the veterans. The blanket that Molly is wearing was made by crafters from Love's Many Cloths charity group. www.lovesmanycloths.com I collected the squares and designed and seamed for Molly as requested by the Blanketed with LoveSM campaign from Tails of Hope Foundation, Inc, www.tailsofhopefoundation.org

The nursing home facility that my grandma lives in also has pets come in and that really cheers up the faces of the many residents. Also just having young babies and children in to visit does the same thing.
Many of the residents had to give up their own loved pets to be in the facility. It is so sad to think that they had to give up the love of something so dear to them after being with them for so long. The pets also are affected.

Sunny, my minipoo, is registered with Delta Society for Animal Assisted Therapy. We visit a nursing home to give love to the patients there. This kind of work is very rewarding for the animals and their handlers, as well as the clients!
