Allan Gessner of Jasper motored on his electric wheelchair with Abbie, a Shih Tzu-chihuahua mix, through the halls of St. Charles Health Campus in Jasper on June 26 delivering newspapers. Allan, who has had limb girdle muscular dystrophy since 2006, visits the residents three days a week to keep them in good spirits as well as keep himself happy. "It makes me feel so good that the dog makes them feel so good. It's like some kind of medication," he said.
