    Reflections on a rest home for the elderly. When faced with the beginnings of empty-nest syndrome, Halpern (I Can't Remember What I Forgot, , etc.) decided to invest time in others as a way to fill her and her dog, Pransky, became a certified human–dog therapy team, working at the local nursing : Sue Halpern. Funny, moving, and profound, A Dog Walks into a Nursing Home is the story of how one virtuous—that is to say, faithful, charitable, loving, and sometimes prudent—mutt showed great hope, fortitude, and restraint (the occasional begged or stolen treat notwithstanding) as she taught a well-meaning woman the essence and pleasures of the good life/5(12).

    The star of A Dog Walks Into a Nursing Home is Pransky, a friendly, well-trained labradoodle and certified therapy dog. However, the end of her book was just the beginning of Pransky’s : Joanne Kaldy. This book was very relevant to me. I've always been a "dog person", and my 97 year old mother entered a nursing home last year - just a few months after our dog died. She was headed toward a nursing home anyway (having had a stroke leaving her in a wheelchair) but I'm convinced the dogs death hastened that move/5(12).
