Dogs bring peace to Boston victims

Posted by Jennifer on April 18th, 2013

Service dogs are incredible. They are unwavering in their unconditional love and devotion to their jobs, which in hospitals, is to give comfort to humans who are suffering. NBC Nightly News has this story about how service dogs are helping the Boston bombing victims in the hospitals, saying, “Of all the traits that make dogs special, here’s one of the best: They don’t judge you when you cry. For that reason, specially trained therapy dogs deployed by Lutheran Church Charities are making bedside visits to dozens of hospitalized victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Many patients are responding mightily to the one-on-one doses of canine comfort.” Our greatest sympathies go out to those who all those who’ve lost family and friends, and to the survivors. We are so grateful to the comfort dogs and their volunteers for their wonderful work!
