Chip the Goose visits Dorset House

12th May 2018

Dorset House residents enjoyed a very special visit over the bank holiday weekend from Chip the goose! Marie Hunt, Activities Assistant at Dorset House keeps many animals at home which she often brings in to meet the residents. Marie’s menagerie includes, chickens, geese, budgies and her Jack Russell, Teddy, who has visited the home regularly since he was a puppy.

Chip was a big hit with the residents, alongside visiting friends and family. Everyone gathered in the lounge for their turn to hold Chip and feed him lettuce. Chip was named by one of the residents, Thelma, who took a particular liking to him.

Chip will be making a return visit to Dorset House in a couple of months, so the residents can see how much he’s grown.
