2012 Caring Canines Cover Dog Receives a New Honor

Penny, a therapy dog who visits nine facilities in her Minnesota community, is a model canine-literally. Not only did she pose for a picture that became the cover picture for the 2012 Caring Canines calendar; but more recently, she appeared on a mural of therapy dogs that visit kids and their families at the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester.

The mural is part of a remodeling project at the facility, and it celebrates the important role pets play in the lives of sick children and their worried families. "I am very proud that Penny is part of this elite group of caring canines," said her 'mom,' Jan Haycraft.  Penny is one the far left in the mural, wearing her patent smile.
