butter Thanks to Debbie and Cliff and my special friend Otis for a fun time the last couple weeks. He even sent a favorite chew toy home with me. I have been to Crystal Pines with Kathy and Debbie. I have greeted at church on Sunday and on Wednesday. On Monday I spent time with Mary Jane. I was at T'ai Chi on Tuesday. There I met up with SJS kids in their 70's and 80's outfits. I visited Dale at the Springs where I was petted on my way in and my way out by so many workers and residents. Still missing Pastor.

Stress Relief Session at Kettering University Brings Students Comfort Just in Time for Final Exams Print E-mail
micah faith What does the stress of final exams, the students of Kettering University, Christ Lutheran Church, and 2 comfort dogs have in common? A stress reliever session at the beginning of final exams week.

For the second year in a row, Faith Comfort Dog of Christ Lutheran Church in Goodrich, Michigan visited the campus of Kettering University for a few hours at the beginning of final exams week. This visit was extra special since Faith took along Micah Comfort Dog in Training. Micah, just seven weeks old, made his first official meet and greet debut at the stress reliever session. According to Linda Todd, the trainer/handler of Faith and Micah, both dogs were a big hit. While Faith lay quietly on her quilt just enjoying the petting from the students, Micah was busy walking from student to student.

Micah gladly accepted all the petting and cuddling the students lavished in him. The day was just a bit tiring for Micah who ended up falling asleep in the arms of one of the students cuddling with him. Even though he fell asleep, the comfort didn't stop. Micah was so relaxed that as the students took turns cuddling with him, he didn't even wake up from his nap. Pastor Todd of Christ Lutheran stated that the meet and greet session was a big hit with the students. And this year, even more students came to visit with the dogs than at last year's visit.
