How come? There is SO much evidence that pets are beneficial to sick people.

If it's a respiratory illness or an immune system deficiency then I could see them saying that.

I think we're honestly talking about hospice care here...they said that they might be ready for Daisy in a few weeks. I didn't push for any more info. :( I told them that Daisy would most likely still be available...and they're happy about that.

That definitely is a very sad and stressful situation. :(
Bringing in a new dog at a time like this would add tons more stress for everyone, and I'm glad they decided to wait, for Daisys sake.

yay! :) It must be meant to be.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.
