Maggie the Golden Retriever: An Inspiring “Tail!”

Bonnie & Maggie Ask are new additions to the PAWH (Pets Assisting With Healing) team on the St. Paul campus.  With Bonnie’s help, Maggie has become a registered therapy dog through the Delta Society.  Last week, Bonnie & Maggie assisted occupational therapist Emily DeBreto with one of her sessions.  Emily’s patient was working on handwriting and grasping skills with a writing tool.  To make the session fun and interesting, Emily asked the patient to interview Bonnie about Maggie.  After the patient finished her interview, she turned it into a story and wrote it on paper.  This patient learned sentence-building without even knowing it!
