The exhibition features original oil paintings, works on paper, bronze sculptures, decorative art, trophies, and canine accessories. More than 100 works will be on view that capture the talent and diversity of canine artists, and also showcase the many breeds that are recognized in America and England, ranging from sporting hounds to pampered pooches.

On Nov. 4 the Hyatt Morristown on Speedwell Avenue will be overrun with pet lovers and medical practitioners as the Morristown Medical Center will present its first Pet Therapy Conference, bringing together experts to discuss the benefits of therapy animals to the field of medicine.

The event, titled, “Who Let the Dogs In?,”  will encourage discussion among those involved in animal-assisted therapy, while educating those who want to learn more about the field.

As part of Atlantic Health System, Morristown Medical Center has integrated animal therapy teams into its offerings, through the organization’s pet therapy program, “Healing Paws.” The program has approximately 60 pet therapy teams, each made up of a hospital volunteer and his or her trained dog, that visit common areas such as waiting rooms. Patients and visitors can pet and interact with the dog in the common area. Each therapy team goes through extensive training by licensed organizations.

Visits by Atlantic Health System’s animal teams are available for most patients, as well as their families and other visitors, by request at all Atlantic Health System hospitals, which also include Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center and Goryeb Children’s Hospital, as well as Atlantic Rehabilitation.

Spring Is Here and It’s Time To Get Moving!

Dog ParkLive Morristown heads over the LEWIS MORRIS PARK to see what’s on offer for our weekend (or weekday!) fun! They even have an off-leash dog park! ‘Nuff said!

About the Park

Named for Lewis Morris, the first Governor of the State of New Jersey, this Park was the first to be opened in the Morris County Park System in March, 1958. The original 350 acres have grown to a total of 1154 acres, which includes a lake recreation area, Parcourse Exercise Circuit, three ballfields, a group camping area and six distinct picnic areas. The newest of these, Deer Run, was officially opened at the Rededication Ceremonies on September 25, 1988. Lewis Morris Park, one of the first parks to benefit from the Interpretive Signage program, is also one of the sites where equestrian trails are designated and implemented.

The County´s veterans’ memorial is located near the Route 24 entrance to the Park and was dedicated in 1992.

In June 1995 Saturn of Denville, Mount Olive, and Livingston, donated their first playground to the Morris County Park Commission. The playground, “Saturn Playgrounds” is a wonderful combination of slides, rings, and climbing structures. It is located next to Doe Meadow in the center of the park.

Sunrise Lake at the Park now features Wibit! Wibit provides a track where players can race each other in on the water. Wibit kayaks are also available for a relaxing ride or a race with family or friends. Call (973) 267-4351 for more information about Sunrise Lake and the Wibit.
