Sharon Spevock and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel visit with Max at the Arbors of Fairmont. Spevock and Pebbles are a certified pet therapy team. In addition to the Arbors, they also visit with patients at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg.

Sitting on a pink polka blanket with pink bows tied around her ears, Pebbles the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel brightens up the day of a patient at the Arbors at Fairmont nursing home.

“I always had a dog,” said Max — who preferred that his last name not be used — to Pebbles’ human, Sharon Spevock.

Pebbles and Spevock visit the Arbors once a month and also make the rounds at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg.
