Therapy dog finds new way to visit nursing home residents

Elizabeth "Tiger" Maynard-White and her therapy dog Duke greeted residents at the Harbor Village Nursing Home in New London in a new way, through the windows, on Tuesday, March 31, 2020. 
The pair has been visiting since Duke was a puppy.  In response to COVID-19 they didn't want to stop visiting but wanted to adapt to social distancing rules.

"We don't have that physical touch but we can still have the emotional touch," said Maynard-White of why she continues to visit.
