During her visits to the Beaumont Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center, a therapy dog spends her time keeping company with residents. However, last weekend, they had a very special surprise for her!
Therapy dog has surprise birthday party
“Her owner mentioned that her birthday was coming, so I thought it would be fun to get a birthday cake,” said Nicole Croteau, director of nursing at the center. “It just evolved from there and we ended up planning a whole party for her.”
When the little dog arrived for her usual visit on Friday, the staff and residents were gathered in the recreation room. All of Maui’s friends were there, as were many gifts, a cake and even a birthday crown.
Maui couldn’t stop smiling and she delighted everyone there!
One particular resident, who has dementia, was actually enjoying the party. Croteau couldn’t help but see how much Maui meant to him!
“They were both very happy,” Croteau said. “The joy that Maui can bring to people is wonderful.”
Certainly, Maui will continue to change the lives of many people after this incredible surprise. Share this adorable story with your friends and family!
