A Dog’s Tale
Here’s a story that typifies the Great Hearts and Wow Moments beneath our roof. Stan, a resident here, and his poodle, Rufus, were the best of friends. In fact, Rufus was Stan’s very heart, as most pets are for our residents. Tammy Thompson, Stan’s MorningStar housekeeper, bonded closely with both man and beast.
One day, while out playing with Rufus, Stan fell, breaking a hip. When Tammy first learned of the accident, she happily volunteered to bring the dog home while Stan recuperated. Because he wasn’t a candidate for surgery, his condition necessitated a permanent move to skilled nursing. What small but tender consolation for Stan, his family and our MorningStar family when Tammy agreed to permanently adopt dear Rufus.
