Day in the life: Whiskey the therapy dog

Whiskey is a Pet Partners-certified therapy dog and official volunteer at UNC Hospitals and on UNC-Chapel Hill's campus during student reading and exam days

From the moment Whiskey’s paws hit the pavement on Carolina’s campus, she is ready to work — and play. She is a certified therapy dog and official volunteer at UNC Hospitals and on campus during student reading and exam days.

Whiskey’s owner/handler, Silvia Kreda, describes Whiskey’s therapy visits as true work experiences in which she is completely in tune with the emotions of the patients and students.
