therapy dogTherapy dog Willie Blue Armstrong receives attention from a Senior Center guest. 

Armstrong Ambulance took its new therapy dog on its first community outing, and it was to the Senior Center.  

The chocolate lab, Willie Blue Armstrong, paid a visit April 18. He was accompanied Armstrong HR Director (and Willie's trainer) Beth Keegan, Katherine Aker, the provider relations and marketing representative, and Meredith Lambroff, the chief business officer.

Following an invitation by Senior Center staff, the outing became Willie's first official trip into the community since he joined Armstrong earlier this year. During his visit, members of the Armstrong team filled attendees in on Willie's background and training.

They also shared some inside stories about Willie’s life at Armstrong's Arlington base, including his devilish side, where he once sneaked off with a colleague’s lunch. The group chuckled at the “Silly Willie” stories and had smiles from ear to ear.

"The group asked a lot of questions, shared stories about their own pets and took pictures with Willie," Lambroff said. "We all left feeling happier. It was a great day, and we're looking forward to going back to visit as well as having Willie brighten up many more lives."

Willie's visit was chronicled on his Instagram account, which features regular updates on his day-to-day life. To see Willie's Instagram page, click here.
