LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Respond to Passing of School Principal's Daughter Print E-mail
Logo On Tuesday, October 7, the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs responded with love and support to the St. Peter Lutheran Church and School in Arlington Heights as they grieved the loss of one of their own.

Principal Bruce Rudi's daughter was unexpectedly called home to be with her Lord earlier that day. During times like these it is hard to understand and comprehend such a tragic loss. A friendly face can do wonders to help with the coping and grieving process of losing one who is close to you.

Ten LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs, including the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Summer Class of 2015, Comfort Dog in-training Aaron, Susie (St. Peter, Arlington Heights) and Tara (LCC) along with their handlers, responded to the needs of the St. Peter Church and School students, staff, and faculty at the end of the school day to bring them comfort in this time of hurt.

Three Comfort Dogs will be present at chapel in the morning. Please be sure to keep Principal Rudi, his wife Carol, and all of the Rudi friends and family in your prayers as they go through this difficult time.

LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Eddie Featured on Good Samaritan Website Print E-mail
Eddie LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Eddie (Peace Lutheran, Grand Island, NE) was placed less than six months ago in the town of Grand Island in Nebraska.

Since then he has been one busy dog, making daily site visits to places all over to bring the Mercy and Compassion of Christ Jesus to those in need. One such place - where he makes several visits a month - is Good Samaritan Society, Grand Island Village. Recently they wrote a story about Eddie and the work he was doing. The story was featured on their website.

With more than 240 locations across the country, The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society is the largest not-for-profit provider of senior care and services in the United States.

They strive to go the extra mile in finding new ways to share Christ’s love with the people around them. They work by highlighting eight of the more profound traits that Jesus showed us. Besides love, the others are compassion, acceptance, joy, humility, honesty, courage and perseverance.

There are over 350 students at Concordia with a wonderfully caring staff. Christ's love and message was so evident in the meeting with them.
