WALLINGFORD, Conn. — Just in time for the holiday season, Nash, an 85-pound black Labrador Retriever, is making his rounds at Gaylord Hospital.
With his handler Amanda McQuaid, a recreation therapist at Gaylord, Nash has been on a mission to spread more joy to patients in December.
“He provides a sense of comfort [to patients], almost like a serotonin boost,” McQuaid said of Nash.
Nash, who will turn 3 years old on Christmas Eve, is popular with patients like Nicole Pedonti, from Portland.
