A helping paw: The growing value of therapy dogs

A helping paw: The growing value of therapy dogs

Staring out the daylit window in the geriatric wing of a Weiss Memorial Hospital room, Ann, a gray-haired woman with pale hunting eyes and paler skin, sat motionless on the edge of her bed. In the doorway, Terry Tauber and Ranger waited for to be announced.
Ann, with squinting eyes and unable to understand English, looked confused. She could not see well enough to know that Terry, a retired Chicago police officer, and her therapy dog had come to visit. Terry and Ranger, a six-year-old sable Collie, approached slowly. Ann’s face lit up. Color infused her cheeks and she reached out both hands to envelop Ranger’s muzzle. Then, closing her eyes, she tilted her head upward and smiled.
“Good, good,” she murmered--one of the few English words she knows. In an instant, Ranger had put a smile on Ann’s face. She looked at Terry and nodded, yes, yes. And Ranger gave clear testimony that he loves his job. The certified therapy dog leaned his head against Ann’s leg while she stroked his neck. Though scores of medical websites and several scholarly journals present evidence that pets have a positive effect on our physical health, none compares to the immediate and visible evidence revealed in an encounter like the one between Ann and Ranger. During a five-minute visit, Ranger’s tactile presence had completely altered Ann’s countenance. She seemed cheerful, relaxed and perfectly at ease.
In fact, physicians have demonstrated that dogs and cats can help lower blood pressure, and suggest that our pets may decrease heart attack mortality (by 3%), and increase the recovery rate and longevity of coronary patients. Certainly, Manchester, CT cardiologist Dr. Steven Sinatra is a believer. He brings two Labs and an Elkhound to his practice every day, where, he says, they ”keep both the patients and me calm. Loneliness is one of the damaging risk factors in people recovering from heart disease.” He also notes that pet owners have five times the survival rate of those who don’t have pets. Most studies seem to agree that because stress is a contributing factor to so many physical aliments, the stress relief demonstrated by pets is a definite health benefit. But pets also have a positive effect on our mental well-being. The American Journal of Orthopsychiatry noted that the recovery in adults with mental disease is improved markedly, because the presence of a pet can positively influence such issues as empathy, self-esteem, and self-efficacy. Indeed, pets seem to have us covered from head to toe, and from the time we are tots to our senior days. On the website of The Delta Society, whose mission is to “advance human health and well being through positive interaction with animals,” regular postings compile the latest research on the intersection of pets and health. For example, the myriad contributions pets make to our children include: *lowering anxiety during a doctor or dental exam *helping cope with serious illness or a death *increasing early cognitive development *encouraging participation in sports and hobbies *reducing the risk of allergies and asthma when a child is exposed to a pet during the first year of life *engendering empathy *increasing the verbal and tactile responses of children with autism As for the seniors among us, the contributions are many: *less frequent visits to the doctor. (A 10-month study conducted by Great Britain’s Royal Society of Medicine compared 71 adults who owned pets with 26 who did not. The group with pets showed a “significant reduction in health problems during the first month that sustained throughout the study.”) *lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels *increased exercise *higher levels of mental acuity among those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s The pet-health relationship continues to be an energetic field of study. Among the ongoing in-depth explorations are those being conducted by The Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, part of the National Institute of Health. The study hopes to find “tangible” evidence that pets can enhance a child’s well-being. On the hospital’s hospice ward, Terry and Ranger stopped to see a Chinese woman. Slumped in a wheel chair and holding her son’s hand, she is gaunt and listless. She speaks no English; but Ranger’s language is universal. When he approached her and flashed that famous Collie smile, she flashed back her own. Terry put a treat in the woman’s, Ranger gently retrieved it, and the woman was delighted. “It’s amazing,” Terry said. Ranger earned his therapy certificate from the Delta Society, whose green cape identified him as he walked the hospital corridors. Heads turn,

It's 3am and I logged on the computer as I came home... crazy, I should be fast asleep as of now.
I went to the theater today with my aunts and my cousins. Mary Poppins. It was nice, the singing, the dancing, professionally done and entertaining. I sure felt like Ms Poppins as I walked to my car afterwards together with my cousins. The youngest being 7 and the oldest 17, and then moi, trying to herd that cattle along the ways of Helsinki, while they wanted to hunt for city rabbits and ride each others backs. My aunts went another way, towards the railway station. Thanks a lot.

One of the kids asked me something interesting at one point, and I had to look it up now online. "Why are the Finnish compass points named so differently from the Swedish and the English?" Oh... Well, Finnish is another language, and one, who doesn't even belong to the same family as those Germanic and Indoeuropean languages. But that was all I could say. See, I think the origins of words is something terribly interesting, asking questions like why, when and where.

So, I looked up the origins of the words of the compass points in Finnish. And here they are (I know you're sitting there on the edge, ready with pen and paper, waiting for this marvellous piece of information to be given to you, do try to contain yourselfs, will ya....) :

Pohjoinen (north) : The word is related to the word pohja, meaning bottom. The ancient Finns believed it was the direction, where one entered the mythological underworld, Manala, the bottom of the world.

Ita (east) : Comes from the verb itaa, meaning germinate, sprout, vegetate, so ita would mean 'the place where the sun germinates' (if you can use that english word in this context... I don't have a clue, :) ).

Etela (south) : May be derivated from the word esi, which would suggest etela means the direction, where the eteinen (porch) of the house is layed out. It could also be related to the base word eta, if so etela would have meant 'a place very far away' (which is so true at this time of the year...).

Lansi (west) : This one is very unsure, one theory is that it could mean the direction where the sun lantataan (flattens, gets squished) when the day ends.

Finnish also has own names for the middle compass points, they are these:

Koillinen (northeast) : Koi means dawn. At the bottom line the word means something that is showing very weekly, something looming. So koillinen has got its name from it being the direction where the first signs of the new day can be seen.

Kaakko (southeast) : The word is related with kaakkuri and kaakko, meaning red-throated diver and black-throated diver, both birds (duh). When the birds return after winter, the wind often blows from the south or the southeast, and those are also the directions from where most birds come. The word kaakko would then mean 'the direction of the birds'.

Lounas (southwest) : Lounas means also lunch, something you eat in the middle of the day, and the direction lounas means the highest point of the day.

Luode (northwest) : Probably derived from the verb luoda, meaning to forge, create, but also sinking something, to shovel (something down). Luode would thus mean the direction, where the sun sets.

Okey. Now you're all asleep. And I'm just all the more fascinated by this. Damn nerd genes of mine.
But goodnight to all of you, sleep tight, sleep well. (Unfortunately I now have a serious date with the Sandman, which means, he won't have time for the rest of you tonight. And probably not next night either, I tend to wore him out. Sorry for the inconvenience dears. You'll get your turns later on, okey?)
