Cheyenne was one of the early Therapy Dogs working with Lily, Jordan, Gracie, Riley, and Sam at Fletcher Allen Health Care. As a border collie, Cheyenne was always willing to play fetch or jump through her hoop to entertain and comfort the many children and adults we visited over the years. She had a special knack for engaging children and drawing them out of their rooms to play with her and help them forget for a while about their illness. My enthusiastic, willing-to-please Cheyenne touched many young lives. I remember even many years after she retired from “active” TDV duty, we received special requests from young patients in the pediatric ward for Cheyenne to visit them. Cheyenne was my first dog and my soulmate. We spent 16 years together and I will always remember her unique spirit and incredible intellect. We shared a special bond that I will always cherish.
