Lois Lema ’80
Lois Lema ’80 and her basset hound “Dexter” have continued to do much therapy-dog work in New Hampshire. Dexter is with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs and has been since 2017. He’ll be four in September. She reports that Dexter is loved at the nursing homes they visit. One home paints his nails a lovely shade of blue. He has visited local hospitals, college dorms, schools and other facilities. He adores kids and the elderly. They are both on the NH DBART team, a group which responds to emotional-crisis situations within the state, and as of now Dexter is the only dog who does such work. He is quite well known, possibly from being on the Union Bank 2019 calendar. He’s frequently recognized while strolling downtown or while hiking the trails of the White Mountains.
