Vernon, a double amputee, has lived in the nursing home for nine years with few, if any visitors. He never married, so his only family was his two Great Danes who made him feel loved and needed. His wish was to have one more visit with some Great Danes at the nursing home.
Thanks to two great local organizations, Service Dog Project, Inc., of Ipswich, MA, and Above & Beyond Great Dane Rescue of Maine & New Hampshire, this wish was granted on May 13, 2008 at his nursing home. Each organization brought two gentle and well-behaved Great Danes to visit with the residents.
Vernon’s visit with these gentle giants was something he had been looking forward to since he found out his wish would be granted.
