Therapy dogs bring smiles at stroke recovery group

Luca and Indy, two members of the local chapter of the St. John’s Therapy Dogs, paid a visit Tuesday morning to the stroke recovery group in the Comox Valley, which meets twice a month at the Courtenay Library.

Therapy dogs visit seniors centres and schools. Dogs are also used at Victim Services at the Courtenay Court House, and during exam week at North Island College.

The stroke recovery group meets at the library from 10:30-11:30 a.m. on the last two Tuesdays of each month.
