Dogs for Calming; Healing Patients

An Airdale and a Rottweiler are Part of a Pet Therapy Team in West Texas.

It's Windsten and Lakota's world. Their owners just live in it. Brightening the lives of patients and staffers alike, the Airedale and Rottweiler are new pet therapy dogs at Midland Memorial Hospital. Claire Glover, who owns Windsten, and Betty Flesher, who owns Lakota, recently bought their four-footed friends to the complex.

Director of Volunteer Services Kim Modisett said Windsten, age 4, and Lakota, 2, are two of eight dogs in the canine visitation program at the main and West campuses.
