Little Luis.

 

• Monteagudo, Bolivia •

Meet little Luis– otherwise known as Puppydoc’s partner in crime. He was a regular visitor to the hospital, as his father had tuberculosis and was undergoing a long course of treatment. 

Since the hospital was a scary place for Luis, we always tried to make the visit pleasant for him. In short, what began as innocent playing quickly escalated to mischievousness as little Luis and Puppydoc discovered the treasure that was the hospital candy stash.

As you can imagine, the supply rapidly diminished into their tummies.

(But don’t worry; Puppydoc later replenished the stolen candy with a fresh stock of Dum Dums.)

  1. Hospitals can be fun! I can recall taking a rather depressed gentleman from Emerg (on a gurney) and up to his allocated Ward at around 2:00am… and getting lost on the way. We had a great time touring the hospital and riding various elevators… and he was in good spirits when we eventually found our destination. We should never underestimate the potential for a smile or two! 🙂
