“I’m a former teacher and I’ve always enjoyed young children,” said Ms. Majewski. “I was so impressed by the effects of pet therapy dogs on children, the elderly and hospital patients, that I wanted to record them somehow. I started to keep a journal and would take notes after I came home from each visit. Soon I had a lot of notes.”
