New Song Community Outreach Event Print E-mail
New Song Community How does an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog make an impression on someone? Respond to a handler giving a “lap” command. Last Saturday, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog, Zippy (Trinity, Roselle IL) did just that. Zippy, joined by Tara and Tabby Comfort Dog in-Training went to New Song Community Church in Aurora to meet about 300 people of the church and community as the kids searched for Easter eggs. When they were done everyone got to meet and pet all the dogs and collect their cards. The volunteer who requested the site visit wrote that the "…visit from the K9 Comfort Dogs over the weekend was amazing! The kids and adults really appreciated having your group at our Church Easter outreach event."

Girl Scout Meeting at Good Shepherd in Bolingbrook, Illinois Print E-mail
Girl Scout Meeting Samuel and Shami (St. John Lutheran Church - Darien, IL), both LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs, met with a Naperville Girls Scout Troop last week. The girls are learning about different types of dogs/animals and how they are able to help people. Through his handler, Samuel shared his stories about his work as a “Fire Dog”, which is very unique, because he doesn’t own any spots! Handlers for both dogs also shared a book called “Dog Heroes”, where Samuel’s work at the Texas Refinery Fire, and Shami’s work in Boston is showcased. The team talked about all the places both dogs have been, how they help people, and the love they are able to bring to others through their paws, and warm hugs!

Passing of the Leash at St. John’s Napa, California Print E-mail
Passing of the Leash in Napa The transfer of an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog from LCC to a local church is not a quick and easy task. First, LCC must coordinate with the church all the handlers and caregivers for the dog, then there is extensive training of the handlers and caregivers (because the dog has already been trained), then there is the formal Passing of the Leash.

Last Sunday, March 29, 2015, after three days of extensive training, Lutheran Church Charities welcomed St. John’s Lutheran Church in Napa, California into the Comfort Dog Ministry by passing the leash of LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Aaron (Exodus 33:19). LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Aaron is the first LCC K-9 Comfort Dog place in California. Now with Aaron working in their ministry, the St. John’s team and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog will work daily to bring comfort to those that are hurting in their community and surrounding areas.

United Trying to Ensure Spring Break Travel Doesn't Bite at O'Hare Print E-mail
United By Gregory Karp, Chicago Tribune

Traveling during busy seasons like spring break can be, well, ruff.

Dog-lovers who happen to be flying on United Airlines over the next few days can enjoy some quality petting time with five golden retriever comfort dogs on the B and C concourses of Terminal 1 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday through Monday.

United said the dogs will "offer travelers some comfort and provide a flier-friendly experience for dog lovers at the airport."

The event with dogs is a reprise of a similar one held a few months ago during the Christmas travel season. The Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dogs are named Luther, Ruthie, Tilly, Butter and Gracie.
