This is Doris!
and she’s in the kitchen
Together with Emma
They are cooking up a symphony
That will paint Ireland pinky red
Or better still Magenta
As they succeed in bringing
Psychiatric Assistance Dogs to Ireland!
Together they have lobbied politicians and the
Minister for Disability Issues
To compile a proposal to Government
Granting public access rights
To Psychiatric Assistance Dogs
So that people, like Emma, who live
With mental health conditions
Can bring a trained Psychiatric Assistant Dog
With them to public places
Just as users of Guide Dogs for the blind
Or Autism Support Dogs have benefitted
From their canine companions
And Doris will be an “extraspectacular” Psychiatric Assistance Dog
Being the first of her kind in Ireland!
Did you know that…
Magenta Ain’t A Colour
By Liz Elliott
Magenta is an “extraspectral” color.
Sir Isaac Newton noticed that magenta did not exist in the spectrum of colors from white light when he played with prisms.
But when he superimposed the red end of the spectrum on to the blue end, he saw the color magenta (this can be done with two prisms to make two spectral spreads, “rainbows”):
Magenta is the only color that does not exist as a single wavelength of light
