Here is a feel-good article to round out the month of December as well as 2015! Uno the Therapy Dog is a special breed of the canine variety. He spends his time volunteering at Children’s Sibley Heart Center giving children the comfort they need to feel brave and smile through their fear.
Every day, Uno accompanies Clark at work, helping the chaplain provide spiritual and emotional support to patients and their families in Children’s Sibley Heart Center at the Egleston campus near Emory University. For two years they have made their rounds together, visiting patients and their families, as well as warmly greeting doctors and nurses.
Sometimes, when everything else seems to fall short, Uno is the one thing that can reach the sickest children.
“He has gotten kids out of bed when nothing else seems to work,” said Clark. “Sometimes it’s as easy as asking the child if they want to take Uno for a walk.”
