Last week, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog® Ministry received an emergency site visit request from the principal at 1st Lutheran School, Fort Smith, Arkansas, after the heartbreaking and unexpected death of Rebecca Stout, a single mother of three of their elementary school students. Rebecca was also a teacher's assistant with their school's three-year-old class. The Comfort Dogs were requested for Rebecca's three sons, the staff, and the other students as they processed the shock of her loss.
Last Wednesday, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Daniel (Immanuel - Joplin, Missouri) and his handlers traveled to be there for Rebecca's three sons and the school. Daniel spent much time with the three boys and some 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade classes.
