QUITO, Ecuador – Every Wednesday, Lancelot and Juci scamper into a special mission: nudging and pawing youngsters into smiles at the only hospital in Ecuador’s capital that treats children with cancer.

Veronica Pardo, the hospital volunteer who owns the dogs, says the animals are used to cheer up the most discouraged of the patients, especially those with the grimmest prognosis.

“Sometimes they do not want to eat, their moms haven’t visited them, they don’t want to take their medicine, or they don’t want to talk with the doctor,” Pardo said.

Then she brings her dogs in on Wednesdays, and small miracles happen as the sick youngsters caress and cuddle the dogs. “The children smile, talk. They’re infused with life.”

Pardo recalled a patient named Dana, a 7-year-old girl who took a special liking to Lancelot, a 15-month-old American cocker spaniel, before she died early this month.

“When she died, her parents told me: ‘You have no idea how my daughter had fun on Wednesdays,’” Pardo said.

When Pardo first started bringing dogs in 2005, they stayed in the hospital garden and played with children before chemotherapy treatments.

Over the next five years, statistics at the hospital showed that on Wednesdays, fewer children had to be kept over because of problems after chemotherapy. Doctors found that youngsters’ adrenaline levels rose from being with the dogs, boosting their resistance to chemo’s side effects.

So the hospital began allowing Pardo’s dogs to visit children in their beds. She and her husband have 18 dogs in all that they work with.

Edison, an 8-year-old farm child whose cancer is declining, is delighted to see Juci, a 5-year-old Parson Russell terrier, holding her tight.

“He knows a lot about animals, because they live in the country,” Pardo said.

Just thought I’d send you an update on Pratsals Xanadu Moon .  She is already in Masters level in AKC agility as she got her Excellent title the end of March.  As you know, she isn’t two yet so she has had quite a start.   She is a fantastic little girl and we love her. She is a real hunter too and actually loves to climb trees. ( she thinks she’s a cat!)

Zu loves everybody… human and canine.  And everyone loves her.  She has a wonderful , loving personality and her tail is wagging 90 percent of the time.  She wakes up in the morning and the first thing she does is climb in my arms and hug and kiss me.  she is a real cuddler.  Of course, there is never a dull moment with her because of her intelligent curiosity.  She doesn’t miss a thing .  And she is soooo fast .  She runs and leaps like a gazelle when she chases the birds or plays with the spraying water from the hose.  She also swims like a fish every day in the pool.
