Willow, our adorable five year old Newfypoo, paid her second visit today to The Dales Mental Health Unit, Calderdale Royal Hospital, Halifax.

Apparently, they were expecting a small white terrier and were quite taken aback when Willow arrived, all 45kg of her!

Our gentle giant Willow, quickly made herself at home making friends with the patients, taking walks in the garden and seeking out treats where she could.

Her calm energy seemed to bring therapeutic benefit to everyone she encountered.

What a marvellous thing animal therapy is, connecting with compassionate animals can without a doubt aid recovery and peace of mind.
