I went to see my Aunty Peggy (My Mum's Mum)

She lives close to the big red castle...

There it is look, we're nearly there!

Now my darling Chester's Mom works in a place like Aunty Peggy lives
and she says how much good pups can do for peeps with dementia
so my peeps ignored the 'no dogs rule'
and snuck me in to see Aunty Peggy

Hiya Aunty Peggy, remember me ...Princess Leah 
Aunty Peggy was sad when we first arrived 
but Mum put me on the bed beside her 
and I licked her hand
That was it!!!!! 
We became firm friends and Aunty Peggy started smiling
We even went to have tea and CAKE in the dining room 
(and yes she fed me loads of CAKE!!!!)

It was a very good day for my Mum and Aunty Peggy
When you nose its the best thingy to do.....

go on and BREAK those SILLY rules!!!!

(PeeS I hopes Santy Paws saw me 'cos I was SUCH a good girl)

Loves and licky kisses
Princess Leah 


  1. I'm so glad you were able to see Aunt Peggy. I am sure it did her a world of good to spend time with you. I have an Aunt with dementia, too, and it is so sad to see her sometimes. Maybe I will break the rules, too, and bring Ruby to see her.

  2. Thumbs up for pets in nursing homes! You did a good job, princess Leah.
    Hugs and love from Terrierhausen

  3. Leah we 100% agree with your Mum. Pets are GOOD for everybuddy!
    My Gma was in a memory facility too. That facility had a resident dog Copper he was a Basset mix and they had a kitty, named Remi who lived full time in the memory unit. Remi loved sleeping on beds and sitting with the residents on the couch in the day room No matter the severity of their memory THEY ALL SMILED GREAT BIG SMILES WHEN THEY SAW REMI. Your princess manners were quite evident. Santa was watching and your stocking will be fulllllllll
    Hugs madi your bfff

  4. that was a super wonderful idea to break that rules... and I'm sure Santa saw how much joy you brought to your aunty and he will add 87 toys more for ya.

  5. We agree that good pets should be allowed to visit everyone! Aunt Peggy seems really nice if she gives out cake.

  7. We here at my house firmly believe in rule breaking!!!! BOL!!! So glad that Aunt Peggy gots to get lickies from you....I know it made her day! I am sure that sent you straight up to the top of Santa Paws nice list!!!!


  8. I think Santa will say you did very well indeed! Some rules are meant to be broken, even Santa will agree.

  9. Awww this makes my heart smile. So glad you could make Peggy happy!!

  10. we think Santa will be happy that you broke that silly rule especially when you bought such happiness

  12. We're so glad you sneaked in to see your Aunty Peggy and made a "little miracle" happen! Ghostwriter says to pass it on and tell all our blogger friends to visit their local nursing homes. Maybe Aunty Peggy's place should change the rules a bit and invite therapy animals to visit too. Have a Happy Christmas!

  13. Santa understands breaking rules for a good reason, and this was definitely a good reason!

  14. Sometimes you have to break rules....'specially the silly ones. We know how much your visit meant to Auntie Peggy. We have a friend who goes to respite in one of those places, and they bring in a dog for him....they have the best time and are buddies. We hope you get to visit Auntie Peggy again soon.

  15. Good for you! Just look how much pleasure you brought Auntie Peggy. We think if they had a dog living there the residents would be much happier.

  16. Oh Leah you did a great thing, and to heck with those rules, I am sure it put a smile on Auntie Peggy's face and your momma's face so that is all that matters, what a sweetie you are.

  17. That is AWESOME!!!! Sometimes breaking the rules is the perfect thing to do! I'll bet Santa approves whole-heartedly! After all - you made your Auntie Peggy SMILE and that's one of the most important things EVER!!! Way to go, Princess Leah!!!
    Yours sincerely,

  18. This is so sweet, Princess Leah!

    You are a sweet little girl.
    Kisses and hugs from your Casper.

  20. I'm glad to have a rebel like you as a friend! <3 *ear licks* Noodle

  21. How nice you were able to cheer her up!

  22. You made Aunty Peggy happy, Leah, and that is a wonderful thing!

    Love ya lots♥

  23. I love this post! It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Dogs are the best medicine.

    Aroo to you,

  24. That place where your Aunty Peggy lives needs to learn from your visit all the good pups can do for their residents. Our Dad's sister suffers from dementia too, very sad too as she is not that old. She is probably going to have to go to a special place soon too as her care has become quite difficult. Makes us all sad at the holiday time:( We hope you get to see your Aunty Peggy again soon.

  25. What a wonderful way to cheer Aunt Peggy up!! We don't understand why some places do not allow us to visit when we can bring so much happiness!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  26. That is definitely worth breaking the rules. You would cheer up anyone and I'm sure that Aunt Peggy loves you very much. ♥

  27. Oh what a wonderful thing you did breaking the rules and bringing a smile to Aunty Peggy. You are such a sweet girl Leah

  28. Why Oh Why would they have such a silly rule like that. Why everybody knows we dogs were just made especially to cheer humans and be their companions and give thems all the love we have. Why all of the care facilities around us allow me to go in and some even have their own dog that checks in on all the residents each day.
    Merry Christmas

  29. There are some rules that are just made to be broken, and I am sure that you breaking that silly rule absolutely made you're Aunt Peggy's whole day!

  30. Pups DO help people with dementia for sure. We used to bring Dakota to see my father-in-law when he was in a nursing home. They are so soothing xoxo DakotasDen

  31. Wow, you are a therapy dog! Doesn't it feel good to help?

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  32. Wow that was a very nice day and I just know Santa Paws will be real special good to you.

    Merry Christmas

    Ziggy Out!!

  33. What an excellent day you had. Silly rules are meant to be broken and we hope you get to visit again really soon.

    Happy Christmas.

  34. Awwww, that was so nice for you to visit...have a very nice Christmas!!

  35. Glad you had a nice visit with your Aunt Peggy. I'm glad you were able to bring a smile to her face. I wish more places allowed dogs. Sometimes just seeing or petting a dog can make someone's mood go from sad to happy in an instant. Happy Holidays to you!!!
