A tiny teacup poodle named Nala is administering a medicine that everyone at a nursing home in Minnesota loves to get. Nala accompanies Doug Dawson to his work at Lyngblomsten nursing home and while he works, she sprints independently around the hallways of the home seeking out people to comfort.
Although Nala never trained as a therapy dog, she has a knack for knowing when people are really sick and need her. She even senses when someone is passing on. When she finds someone she wants to see, she jumps on their laps and gives them a cuddle and makes them smile. As the residents describe her, she’s an “angel”.

Nala reminds me of Oscar the cat, who has Nala’s compassion and instincts for comfort.
