Boston Marathon Comfort Dogs

Hello Friends…It’s been a sad and somber week, and our hearts go out to all affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy.  We at this blog will continue to stand, on two legs and four, for PEACE.

During these difficult times, our pets can provide us with the unconditional love, comfort, and comic relief that we need to heal.  I was so glad to see in the news that a team of specially trained golden retriever therapy dogs were dispatched to Boston to visit victims in area hospitals.   The dogs are part of the K-9 Comfort Team of the Lutheran Church Charities.  Member dogs hail from several states and travel widely to see those in need across our Country.  Recently members of the K-9 team helped the children of Newtown, CT as they returned to school.  

If you’d like to learn more about these very special dogs visit http://www.lutheranchurchcharities.org – you can also read the following recent article from the New York Daily News…which is how we first heard about these canine comforters:  http://soa.li/elhffAD

I am constantly amazed by how soothing Cookie’s presence is to us when we are feeling blue.  I hope when she is a little bit older and calmer, that she too can be trained as a therapy dog.  Cookie is so friendly and sweet, especially with kids, and has so much love to give.
Wishing you love, peace and courage, Diana
