Top Dog Bonnie and Cubby Comfort Dog enjoyed riding in the pace car and visiting with many attendees. She recalls “one lady came up, just knelt down by Cubby, and hugged Cubby without saying anything. After about a minute, the woman said, ‘I just needed that, I needed to feel her energy.’ She had a very peaceful smile on her face and walked away. This was a very powerful witness for me to see. No words, just presence. That is what I see and feel a lot about our ministry with Cubby. Jesus' presence through us just showing up.”
Other comments that Bonnie heard that day were: "Oh, Cubby, I just needed you today." "She's so calm, how did you train her to be this way?" and "Thank you so much, this is what I needed today." Even a few thankful tears were shed when participants asked and heard the LCC story about bringing the Mercy, Compassion, Presence, and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need.
