Having three LCC trainers plus Marie and Joanna Comfort Dogs-in-Training at the meeting to interact with the 10 regional dog teams was fantastic. In addition to the 10 Southwest teams, 2 Oklahoma teams in-waiting and 1 in the exploratory stage joined together at St. Paul Lutheran in Fort Worth, Texas. We enjoyed lots of training, great times of networking, sharing, good food, and fun! Jan Russell, from Bethany in Austin, provided instructions for her button bandana design and kits for each dog.

Purple was Lexi’s favorite color and students spent their time making memory bracelets, memory boards, and visiting with the Comfort Dogs. Please keep her family, students, faculty and staff in your prayers as they cope during this time.
