TULSA, Oklahoma -

It was a big day out at Saint Simeon's. The Tulsa retirement community had a party for Simone, the resident tail wagger and unconditional love giver.

Simone just turned four, and a big crowd showed up at her birthday party to give her back a little of what she gives them everyday.

"Shake, good that's wonderful," said Kathy Hinkle, education director at Saint Simeon's.

Simone just aims to please. and does it very well. Simone's birthday was Monday. There's a party planned, but we came early to watch her work.

"She's the home dog. She can go anywhere she's welcome," Hinkle said. 

Simone goes home with Kathy Hinkle every evening, but while Simone is at the retirement community during the day - she has a job.

She goes visiting everybody.

Teresa Reno is taking Simone on her rounds. There are some regulars who ask for a visit. Izzy Levine said come on by, and so she did.

Then she's back on her way. She got all the way down the hall then realized we'd stopped. As if to say, "Hey, come on," back she came.

She stuck her nose into an exercise class. It was a chance for everyone to take a break.

These visits always come with treats. Simone likes that too. And she likes a party. There were people and cakes and friends - some adoptable buddies from agencies around the area.

You could hear them wishing Simone a happy birthday too.

It was almost a standing room only crowd; Simone's a popular lady. On her Facebook page she lists her occupation as Chief Executive Cuddler.

I'd say she's one of the best in the business.
