For 10 years, Dottie the dog has brought smiles and comfort to many, and she's been inducted into the Oregon Animal Hall of Fame for her efforts. Dottie's owner, Christina Lewis, owner and manager of the Eagle Inn Adult Foster Home and the Shepherd's House was thrilled to learn of the honor, especially now, because Dottie is facing health issues of her own: “She spends a lot of time with my clients. Dottie has done this pretty much since the day she was born. I got Dottie 10 years ago actually and it's kinda funny to hear the story that she's awesome because Dottie’s got a lot of health problems. She has an enlarged heart, she's going blind, and she has a thyroid that does not work." Lewis says she initially bought Dottie to be a companion to her ailing husband who died several years ago, and then just began bringing Dottie to work and she instinctively knew what to do to comfort her clients. Dottie was honored at a special dinner and ceremony at Oregon State University last week.
