Just wanted to write you to let you know how thankful I am for the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog ministry.

Eddie was a trooper as we were practicing the commands with him and walking him through all of the paces. I am excited to continue practicing the new skills I have learned today.

Thank you for all YOU have done in Washington. I have learned A LOT from you and many of the team members over the past two weeks. I am blessed to be a small part of your team in Washington to help bring hope to the lives that have been turned upside down. I am looking forward to many more years of service and helping to expand your ministry. Hope you are doing well.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Visit With Children at United Airlines' "Fantasy Flight to the North Pole" Print E-mail
United Airlines Fantasy Flight 2013 at O'Hare International Airport On Saturday, December 7th, nine LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and their handlers traveled to O'Hare International Airport to take part in the United Airlines Fantasy Flight. The Fantasy Flight is a flight to the North Pole that United Airlines employees run and sponsor every year. They host 30-35 families with a critically ill child and make their holiday wishes come true. Once the children land at the North Pole they get to meet Santa, have a meal in Mrs. Claus' Kitchen, and many other fun events. On their way out, they stop by Santa's workshop to pick up a bag of presents for all the children in their family.

United Airlines Fantasy Flight 2013 at O'Hare International AirportThis is the third year the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs were invited to participate and were once again a huge hit with the children and their families. Each child was able to get a picture with the dogs that they could have in a keepsake card and were given a stuffed Comfort Dog toy to take with them for times they needed some comfort. It is a privilege for LCC to work with United Airlines with this event and we look forward to the years to come.
