What words would you use to describe a dog?
Everybody is going to have their own opinion on what words they would use, but perhaps the one that is true across the board is loyal. Yes, dogs have a degree of loyalty that is very difficult to find in many other creatures, including humans. Quite simply, they will stand by your side through thick and thin and it doesn’t matter if you are having a bad day or if you are in mortal danger, the dog is going to be there to help you in any way that they possibly can. Perhaps that is why we love dogs so much.
Dogs are not only loyal, they are great companions and good friends to anyone who needs them. They can be a family pet that is there for every member of the household but sometimes, they provide benefits to individuals who are sick and unable to care for themselves. That is the case with Nala, a teacup poodle who has been a comfort to many individuals in elderly care facilities. Nala was first brought to the Lyngblomsten Care Center in Minnesota by Doug Dawson, and the pooch immediately went to work. That nursing home got a surprise when the dog showed up, because it seemed as if she was absolutely born to care for those individuals.
When Nala was on the scene, she would quickly run from one person to another, making sure that everybody got their equal share. The cheerful disposition was something that she was able to share and it wasn’t long before she was also popular with the community, thanks to the news reports. It seemed as if the dog was able to sense when somebody was not feeling well and she would rush to be with them. She would provide lots of affection and doggy kisses, which is some of the best medicine we could get.
Eventually, Nala would simply ride the elevator on her own. She did need some help when it came to pushing the buttons, but Dawson admits that she would push them herself if she could reach them. She just walks in the elevator and when somebody pushes the button, she’s off to see someone on the next floor.
Little dogs, such as Nala, can have a real impact on people’s life. Unfortunately, Dawson passed away at the age of 63 but not before he left behind a legacy in a little dog that was able to do big things.
