Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having an awesome week. Coming up on this Friday, June 26th, is Take Your Dog to Work Day! Now’s your chance to bring your dog with you to your office, and it sounds like a doggone good time! We love it when dogs come and visit us at the hospital, and they even do tricks for us. As you can guess, Kwon Do is super excited about Take Your Dog to Work Day. He can’t wait to make new friends. When it comes to dogs, he thinks it’s the more the merrier…but I think it’s the more the hairier…or maybe it’s even the more the terrier!
Here’s wishing you a Take Your Dog to Work Day that’s really top dog!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Did you know that June is National Rose Month? Cherry Ot told me that on November 20th in 1986, President Ronald Reagan named the rose the official flower of the United States. It’s probably because roses are so beautiful! Plus, many states have the rose as their state flower. I learned that Georgia has the Cherokee rose, New York has the rose, and Iowa and North Dakota have the wild prairie rose. It’s true that I love roses, especially their lovely smell, but as you probably guessed, my favorite flower is the lily!
We hope you have a critterrific rose-filled month!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a great week. Tomorrow is National Nursing Assistants’ Day, and it marks the beginning of National Nursing Assistants’ Week! Nursing assistants are selfless individuals who dedicate themselves every day to helping others. Whether they’re certified nursing assistants, nursing aides, caregivers, or direct care workers (to name a few), we are so thankful for the amazing work that nursing assistants do to make others feel better. They work tirelessly to support medical staffs, and even more importantly, they work tirelessly to support their patients and provide them with the care that they need.

Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope your June is off to a great start! Did you know that June is National Zoo and Aquarium Month? It’s so much fun to visit zoos and aquariums because you get to see so many strange and exotic animals really up close. Sometimes you even get to touch them! I love learning about animals, and the best part is that right now zoos and aquariums across the country have special exhibitions just for visitors like you. Even their websites are full of photos, videos, and fun facts that celebrate all of the amazing animals.
Check out the Association of Zoos and Animals to find the animal fun nearest you. A lion’s roar is just a click away! And don’t forget…have a critterrific animal-filled month!
Hey, what’s up? It’s me, Max, and I hope you’re having a great week. Did you know that today is National Sunscreen Protection Day? With summer right around the corner, today is a great reminder for all of us to put on sunscreen every single day. That’s because sunscreen helps protect us from harmful ultraviolet rays that can hurt our skin. Cherry Ot said that we should even put on sunscreen when it’s not that sunny out because those damaging rays can come right through the clouds. So don’t forget to pile it on before you go outside!
Bye for now!
Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer today, and I hope you’re having a great week. Memorial Day is coming up on Monday, May 25th, and it’s a day when we remember and honor all of the brave soldiers who fought for our country. These men and women gave everything they had to protect us all, and we are so lucky for their bravery, selfless, and dedication to freedom. In honor of these soldiers, Berry Bruised and I wrote a poem. We hope you like it!
