K9 Comfort Dogs and their Handlers Surprised on Good Morning America

The K9 Parish Comfort Dogs from Lutheran Church Charities were featured on Good Morning America yesterday in a segment called “You’re Not Dreaming”  They choose someone or a group of people that have really resonated with them and deserve some special recognition.  ABC News and GMA anchor Lara Spencer chose the Comfort Dogs and says she hasn’t been able to stop thinking about them since she first met them in Newtown.

I’m sure you all know who they are by now.  They are a group of golden retrievers and their handlers who visited Joplin after the town was devestated by the tornado, Sandy Hook Elementary, Boston, and many other places some comfort was required.  These handlers are selfless, wonderful people willing to drop everything at a minute’s notice to help others in some of the most grim situations.

Yesterday the dogs and handlers got to walk the red carpet and were rewarded with many treats including a “doggy bag” full of jerkey, shampoo, toys etc from Sergeants Pet Care, a spay day at Canine Ranch Spa, A “Rufflaxation Massasge” courtesy of Hope Vet Clinic and a free grooming from New York Dog Spa and Hotel.

The handlers were rewarded with gift certificates from bliss Spa.

President of Lutheran Church Charities Tim Hetzner was presented with a full size van from Hertz that they have use of for a year.
