If there is one good thing this pandemic has taught us, it’s the ability to help regardless of who and what we are. Loki, a Rottweiler, is no exception. Although it’s not the first time that we’ve heard of a dog step up in a time of need, we’d like to show appreciation for the inspiring role she has portrayed during the COVID19 pandemic.
Before the lockdown, Loki used to be a therapy dog at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). Together with her adoptive mom, Caroline, they would make rounds at the UMMC to check on patients and their visitors, hospital staff, doctors, and nurses to cheer them up. Thus, the honorary title of “Dogtor.”
The idea of having Loki become a therapy dog was an inspiration Caroline drew from the pooch who visited her grandfather in the hospital. It had a positive impact on the patients that she wanted so much to get on with the idea. From then on, Loki and Caroline had been inseparable going to the hospital and making everyone feel good, especially with Loki’s presence.
