Oklahoma City therapy dog goes on his final round

CARRIE COPPERNOLL Published: July 28, 2009

After Boz’s last trip outside, Mosca’s son set the dog down on the floor while they waited for the elevator to arrive.

The dog turned his head and spotted a group of elderly patients. Even though he hadn’t really walked in days, the dog stood up, walked across the hall and let all the patients pet him one last time. He walked back to the elevator and collapsed on the floor.

"Just a working dog to the end,” Mosca said. "He was a sweet puppy dog and loved by many, many folks. … He was just a very special creature.”

After returning to the vet, Boz deteriorated further. He couldn’t move, and he wouldn’t recover. Mosca had to make the heartbreaking decision to end the suffering. Since then, he’s heard from colleagues and patients who are grateful for the difference Boz made in their lives.

"He brought a lot of joy to a lot of folks,” Mosca said, "and that’s the part that counts.”
