Lake City, IA: Four-legged, Furry Friends Stop By


Jack and Betty S. really enjoyed spending time with Rigby, an Australian Shepherd dog. Rigby is the pet of Sarah C., Administrator. Rigby made the rounds “saying hello” to many of the Shady Oaks residents recently. Scrappy, a Pomeranian-Jack Russell mix, also visited the residents, spreading the love as only a dog can do. Scrappy, a Pomeranian-Jack Russell Terrier mix belongs to Director of Nursing Stacey Moreland. Everyone that the dogs met greeted them with plenty of smiles and friendly pats. Occasionally, the dogs received a special dog treat and performed some fetch too. Both dogs were very well-behaved. Residents enthusiastically encouraged the dogs, along with their owners, to come back again soon for another visit!
