From one of our viewers: 
Thought I would pass on that I just gave my mom a "breathing" dog for her birthday.  She absolutley loves it!! And it seems to be a hit with some of the other patients where she lives. So glad for the suggestion.  Was not sure how she would react, as her dementia is not severe...she is aware that it is not "real", but she is delighted by it!  I hope others will enjoy a pet as well!
