WHEREAS, as a licensed therapy dog, Fairway is a member of the family of service dogs who provide loving and empathic support in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and hospitals; and
WHEREAS, while Fairway gets a warm and affectionate response from everyone he works with, the connection he forms with special needs  children is true testament to the innate abilities of the entire therapy dog community and is so reflected in their dedicated service; and
