“Daphne walked more distance than I have seen her walk for some time by taking Bogey for a stroll through the clinic, and she even danced a little jig,” says Satrina Hill, the nurse manager in the OTC. “The excitement on her face was priceless, and she smiled continuously. Bogey is amazing.”
Bogey is a seven-year-old flat-coated retriever owned by Kyle Kusa-Henry, senior medical secretary in the liver transplant program. She trained Bogey and had him certified through Therapy Dogs International, which tests and registers therapy dogs and their handlers for the purpose of visiting hospitals and medical clinics such as our Outpatient Transplant Clinic.
