On Tuesday, January 26, LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Chloe (Lord of Life - Elburn, Illinois), Jessy (St. Paul’s - Concordia, Missouri), and Samson (Zion - Marengo, Illinois) visited virtually Our Savior Lutheran School in Crookston, Minnesota. Here is a note from the Principal about the visit:
"Our preschool-grade six students loved seeing the comfort dogs and learning more about the program. We learned about the training needed for the comfort dogs, all of the different places that comfort dogs visit, and the teams that take care of the dogs and get them to where they are needed. We found out that their most important job when they have their vests on is to sit calmly and not disturb anyone. This was a surprise to many. Many students were sad to see the time end as they just wanted to sit and look at the dogs! We have learned about therapy and guide dogs, but comfort dogs have a completely different job. We also love looking at their Facebook pages and seeing how they act when they have free time. We will check in on the three we met now and then to see what they are up to."
