LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Visit After Carbon Monoxide Poisoning At School Print E-mail
Girard On Thursday, September 18, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Prince & Isaiah (Holy Cross, Portage, IN) Kye & Bekah (Immanuel, Belvidere), Noah (Timothy Lutheran, St. Louis) and Comfort Dog in Training Aaron worked at North Mac Intermediate School in Girard IL.

On Monday of that week the school had a carbon monoxide leak that sent more than 100 students and teachers to the hospital. Pastor GeRue from Trinity Lutheran in Girard arranged with the school to have the dogs as well as other clergy from the community at the school when students returned.

Our dogs were staged around the gym so those affected could visit and pet each dog. While students interacted with the dogs Pastor GeRue and others were able to watch for cues and determine if children were in need of extra help in coping with the extra stress of the week.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Lila Visits with Family After Tragic Drowning of Son Print E-mail
Over the weekend, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Lila (Beautiful Savior, Mequon, Wisconsin) received a request to visit a family whose son had tragically drowned during a pool party.

On Monday, September 15, LCC received the following from Lila and her handlers:

Lila Visit
At the request of the school administration, Beautiful Savior's Lila and her handlers recently visited the students at Sherman Park Lutheran Church & School in Milwaukee. A student had tragically drowned, and his family, fellow students, and the entire school were devastated.

After being briefed by a very compassionate Dean of Students, my team and I first met with the boy's cousins and closest friends. Understandably, they were quiet and reserved and somewhat reluctant to approach me. We encouraged them to come closer and get down on the floor with us. Before long, with God's grace, they began to stroke my fur and ask questions about me. The stress they were under seemed to lessen as the minutes went by. Pastor shared some encouraging thoughts, and soon gentle smiles appeared on their faces.

Lila Visit Throughout the afternoon, we met with small groups of students from the entire seventh and eighth grades. The progression of emotions pretty much repeated itself with each group. One lovely young lady told us that when she first came in, she was mad over the inexplicable tragedy. But after spending some time down on the floor with me and talking things out, "I'm not mad anymore," she told us with a smile. The power of God's peace and comfort!

Lila Visit As the afternoon progressed, the Dean brought in the group of cousins again, this time joined by the student's own sister, who had been at the scene of the drowning. Earlier, she had spent most of the day in a private office, too sick with grief to join the rest. Once again, we all joined together to receive God's spirit of community and feel His presence bringing comfort to their hurting hearts. As we prepared to leave, the Dean and the cousins shared hugs with all of us, and they walked us to the car for a final good-bye.
