West Haven Manor
Here I am in my 40th year of long-term care. It is often said that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks, but that is not totally true. You can teach an old dog new tricks; it's just extremely difficult. In the case of this old dog, it took a near-death experience.
Perhaps you regularly see acts of altruism that restore your faith in humanity. Given that I work in journalism and live in the city, I do not. Therefore, exceptional kindness gives me pause. Or in this case, paws.
