Medical Center Staff Applaud Retiring Therapy Dog

Staff at the Doctors Medical Center in Modesto, California, lined the corridors and applauded retiring therapy dog Tassy on April 30.

In a press release, the center said volunteer Geri Azevedo had been bringing Tassy in for more than eight years.

“Over that time, Tassy’s gentle nature has brought joy and solace to so many within the walls of our hospital – patients, visitors and our employees. Although Geri will continue as a volunteer with us, 12-year-old Tassy will be enjoying the sweet peace of retirement at home.”

The center said Tassy received “a celebratory walk and a retirement paw-ty as she officially passed the bone to our current service dog, Bria." Credit: Doctors Medical Center via Storyful
