I bet many residents had a great time, also. My experience has been that nursing home residents are very appreciative of many types of attention and entertainment, responding more to the fun attitude of the entertainer than worrying about the fine points of quality of presentation. My dog Charlie has been greeted quite enthusiastically by nursing home residents for many years. His only "entertainment" skills are good listening, good tail wagging, and when he was younger, he fetched tennis balls dropped or thrown. Now, at age 18 or 19, his days are mostly spent sleeping, but it was fun to take him out there and see how much brighter he could make the day for many people.
