What's a fashion show without impractical outfits?
There's the blonde bombshell...and four one four-legged model, giraffe is the new zebra.
After induldging in the pink carpet, these models get to the real reason they're at Dell Children's Medical Center -- to visit the kids.
Sporting an eyepatch and parrot, Floyd works the circuit bringing comfort.
The specially trained volunteer dogs visit twice a week.
"When they started coming out, he's like, 'mommy, mommy - look!' So, now he's being a little shy, but he loved it," said the mom of Apolianar Saldana IV.
A little joy for some big hurts.
Not all the kids can get to the show. So, sometimes, there's a house call to a patient's room.
Kaylen Kelley's been at the hospital a month. Getting visits like this are a taste of normal life.
Kaylen has two dogs back home
"It's nice to have a new face come in and say, 'hi," said Kaylen.
Attention from the kids doesn't go unnoticed.
The dogs come to give love and affection, which might be why they seem to get more in return.
