The First St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog in a Canadian Emergency Room
About this Item
Murphy, an English Springer Spaniel, is the first St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog to visit an emergency room in all of Canada. The visits by Murphy and his handler, Jane, to the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon Saskatchewan are enjoyed so much by hospital patients that Mondays have become known in the emergency room as "Murphy Mondays". Jane and Murphy also love to teach children how to wash their hands properly. Singing "Happy Birthday to Murphy" is a fun way to learn.
