Therapy Dogs Visit TWU Houston

 Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs of Houston visit TWU Houston twice a year, during finals  returned 2 December. In our TWU Houston lobby, here are TWU student Erin holding Doodle, a  Mi-Ki .  Liam, behind her is an Irish wolfhound and these certified therapy dogs,  with their owner/trainers  greet faculty, staff, and students plus visitors. All get the opportunity to learn about the purpose and value of therapy dogs in health care, including helping military veterans with PTSD, amputees, those with Alzheimer's disease, prisoners and others. The visit is co-sponsored by Houston's office of Student Life and the Academic Resource Center (Library).
