Santa's furriest helper

Santa's furriest little elves stopped by Mercy Health-Lourdes Hospital recently to spread Christmas cheer among all the nursing units. Therapy dog Nelson and his partner-in-training Brody hail from Four Rivers Love on a Leash located in Paducah and they have become firm favorites with Lourdes Hospital's care team. Nelson is in the Santa suit and Brody wears the Santa hat bandana. Mercy Health Foundation-Lourdes arranges their visits to the hospital to lift spirits.
