Hays Free Press May 13, 2015 COMMUNITY Page 3C Pup With Purpose Continued from pg. 1C it would be a great match." It seems she was fight. Residents gathered around Elvis in the living area, talking with him and petting him. One woman, Marny Doyle, got down on the floor and interacted with him one on one. She lavished kisses and hugs on the eight- year-old basset hound, who eventually laid down and turned his belly up for a rub. This elicited "oohs" and "aahs" from the tiny audience. When Elvis arrived at the Garcia's, he wasn't in great shape. The family took him to a local vet and found out he had a large tumor growing in his mouth, causing him difficulty eating. The vet removed it. "He gained 10 pounds since they removed the tumor," Garcia said. "He's do- ing great and it wasn't cancerous." The women in the living area of the facil- ity all said they enjoy when E]vis visits. "It makes me happy," one woman said. A few residents said they had dogs when they were young. Some also recalled having a dog when their own children were little. "We encourage family to bring pets to visit," Jason Diaz, the special care program coordinator, said. "We just want to be sure they are up to date on shots." He specializes in recreation therapy, which involves getting residents out and ac- five, socializing with their neighbors. "One benefit of having Elvis come to the Memory Care unit is they will familiarize themselves -- they will reminisce about a dog they used to have," he said. Doyle said, "We should all be allowed to have a dog." Diaz said they used to have a house cat,- but one of the residents kept taking her to her room and hiding her from the others. Another resident, Edith Settles, said, "Elvis is a good dog. He loves to have his picture taken." Elvis took it all in from his vantage point, seemingly enjoying being lavished with attention. A fire alarm test dur- ing his visit didn't even phase Elvis, though the alarm was shrill and loud. As other residents then gathered in the living area. The hound had even more people to shower him with attention. Many smiles broke out on faces around the room. Elvis took it all in stride. After all, it's his job. Continued from pg. 1C Mt.
