Texas therapy dog bringing a smile to senior citizens who can't have visitors

This story speaks to a woman's efforts to cheer up seniors in Texas who are shut in due to COVID-19. The woman, Courtney Leigh, brings her Great Dane, Tonka, to a Texas nursing home. She walks the dog around the outside of the nursing home so that the seniors can see and interact with Tonka in order to lift their spirits during these trying times. Courtney also carries around signs to give the seniors an uplifting message from herself and Tonka. What a great thing!
