This Nursing Home Patient’s Reaction to a Police K-9 Will Move You to Tears

When police officers from Kingston, England, visited the Royal Star & Garter nursing home last week to talk to residents about scams, they brought along five police K-9s — and the residents seemed most excited to meet the dogs. So, when their presentation was over, Sgt. Tony Marshall decided to bring 11-week-old puppy Daisy upstairs to meet the patients who weren’t able to come. Muriel, one of the residents, has been at the home for several months now. Her nurses say she is usually very quiet and doesn’t show emotion. But that changed when Daisy was placed on her lap. “She lit up and gave us a big smile!” the police department posted on Facebook. Her reaction was so unusual that it moved her nurse to tears. “I was shocked to see Muriel’s reaction and I would like to thank the Star & Garter for having me, it was a great opportunity and something I will remember for the rest of my life,” said Marshall. — Read it at Woofipedia
