Come to the dog side

Tampa General Hospital patient Noemi Martinez and pet therapy dog Blake (a field lab), dressed as "Dog Vader," work the lunchtime crowd Thursday, seeking a donation or getting a photo taken with "Dog Vader" for a dollar. Other dogs on hand for a Star Wars-themed photo op were Teddy (a terrier) as Yoda. Huey (a pug-chihuahua-dachshund mix) as Chewbacca, and Chicklet (a chihuahua-dachshund-Pekinese mix) as Princess Leia. The funds will go toward the annual Pedi Rehab holiday program for the kids and for therapeutic patient outings, such as a recent trip to the Clearwater Aquarium.
