    Celebrating Our Pet Volunteers!

    Hello! My name is Louie and I have been volunteering for Northland Hospice & Palliative care with my human Dave for 5 years.

    I’m 9-years-old and have lived with Dave and Teri Hill for 6 years. They rescued me when I was 3 years old. My first mommy named me after Louie the Lumberjack. She didn’t have time for me, so she looked for a new home and I hit the jackpot!

    Dave worked with me, taught me social skills, and soon I became a volunteer hospice dog. It is high on my list of the things I love to do. Dave and I work as a team. He takes me to Oliva White Hospice Home every Tuesday and Thursday. When I lay my head on a patient’s bed or lap, I’m rewarded with hugs and pets. I could really do this by myself, but I can’t drive.

    I love to take walks, go for hikes, and chase squirrels and rabbits. I love the hospice home. Everyone smiles when I’m around and I’ve heard I even help bring down blood pressure! I’m a very lucky and happy golden retriever.




    Over ten years ago Dusty was adopted from the humane shelter as a puppy.  From an early age she demonstrated a gentle spirit and an acute ability to learn new commands.  After going through the necessary training to become a certified therapy dog in 2012, Dusty has mainly served at the local hospital, cancer center, airport, and hospice.  As the years have progressed she has become more and more attuned to people’s feelings as they respond to her warmth.

    Memories of her hospital visits are now saved in a booklet called “Dusty’s Memories” and given out to persons who especially may enjoy reading it.  Since retiring from work as a firearms/toolmark examiner in the crime lab, I have had more time to take Dusty for visits.  It is a most rewarding time.  I joke that I know how a Hollywood celebrity’s spouse must feel – everyone knows Dusty by name.  Me? I’m just the old guy on the leash.
