Puppy Love at the Children's Cancer Hospital

| Comments (1) | Trackbacks (1)

Patients at the Children's Cancer Hospital at M. D. Anderson got a surprise on June 10 when two special canine guests paid a visit to the young patients on the ninth floor. Westminster Dog Show winners, Stump and J.R., strutted into the PediDome recreation room and were immediately covered with pats and kisses from their youngest fans.
 


The two dog celebrities were there to give patients a distraction from their treatment, while also endorsing a new line of pet products from the Children's Art Project. CAP unveiled the "Flag" pet bandana that features the artwork of three pediatric cancer patients. In addition, five new dog ornaments from Joy to the World Collectibles were created for CAP, and all sport the bandana design.
 
Although Stump and J.R. looked good in their new bandanas, they seemed much more interested in the rubs and attention they were getting from all of the patients. In return, the pets provided a comfort for the children, which was evident by the smiles that spread across each face.
