A Dog is a Guy's Best
|Hi, my name's
Jeremy, and I never thought I'd get to make friends with a dog in the hospital.
When I met this special visitor, Rufus, I was so excited. I think that
he really likes me, too, don't you? In this next picture, can you figure
out which one of us is the patient? Here's a clue. He's wearing pajamas...
interesting thing happened when I was patting Rufus. Some of his hair fell
out, just like mine did when I was getting some strong medicines to get
rid of cancer! I hope that you'll get to meet a volunteer dog visitor if
you ever have to go to the hospital!
