Back in May Sr. Joan's dog died. When she lived in her hermitage for over 30 years she always had a dog. When she came to live in the infirmary she really missed having a dog. It was a difficult transition for her so we decided to help in the transition we would get her a dog. By the end of May we were searching for another dog and found Sammy. Sammy is a puppy but is quickly learning about good behavior in the abbey infirmary. He is very playful but also likes to cuddle with Sr. Joan. All the sisters enjoy him and visit him and Joan in the infirmary.
