[Image Description: A #DeltaTherapyDog moment with a female program beneficiary dressed in a black blouse with pink and cream florals and black and white stripe trousers. She is gently stroking the face of a Delta Therapy Dog who is smiling up at the her. The Delta Therapy Dog is smiling and you can see a Delta bandanna peeking under their long hair fur which is white around their neck, face and paws. The rest of their body is long black fur. The Delta Therapy Dog volunteer stands to the side. This moment sparks joy.]
