On Monday 29 November, Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs visited the TWU Houston lobby, sponsored by the Houston Library and Houston Student Life. Some 100 TWU faculty, staff, and students came to greet them and their owner/trainers and learned all about therapy dogs and their use in health care. These highly trained therapy dogs regularly visit prisons, hospitals, long term care facilities and other sites. They help children and adults and patients suffering from PTSD, adjusting to amputations, those with emotional distress, and other conditions.
