Chile 'Therapy' Dogs Offer Tummy Rubs to Soothe Patients and Medics
Pepe, a Chilean "therapist" with long blonde fur, and Chimu, his feisty black-and-white female canine companion, stroll the hallways of a pediatric hospital in the capital Santiago, licking hands and offering their ears and bellies for caressing. They are helping relieve stress at the Exequiel Gonzalez Cortes hospital in San Miguel. What a great idea!
