Tint Dancer

Patricia Becker, of Paisley, pets Dancer on Thursday at the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute Waterman. Dancer, the tiny Chihuahua once in the running to be named the world's smallest dog, has recovered from defeat and started chasing another record: world's smallest therapy dog. The rust-colored, long-haired pooch recently became certified to work with hospital patients and other people in need of a little TLC. TOM BENITEZ, ORLANDO SENTINEL
