We read this morning that a team a therapy dogs are headed for Boston. This particular squad has been very busy lately, spending time with bereaved families in Newtown, CT, as well as comforting New Jersey residents affected by Hurricane Sandy. Known as the K-9 Comfort Dogs, they’re part of a special ministry of Lutheran Church Charities.
We know – as you certainly do – how soothing it can be to cuddle with a dog. They always seem to understand when a quiet moment is called for. Pickles is always there for us, often even pinning us down when she decides it’s time to rest.
