Llama Therapy: Not as Weird as it Sounds. You know the concept of a therapy dog, right? Furry animal brings comfort and joy to the sick and aged by way of being soft, pettable, and sweet? Well, Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley has taken that idea and applied a Monthy Python-esque dose of awesome to it by way of a therapy llama. Yes indeed, they are trotting around the memory unit with a fluffy camelid who can simultaneously be a source of comfort and a conversation starter. Warning: this video is amazingly sweet, so have a tissue nearby when you watch it, just in case. [Boston Globe]
