A Letter of Thanks From Ridgefield High School in Connecticut Print E-mail
girl hugging a golden retriever comfort dog Last week, LCC received the following letter from the Principal of Ridgeview High School in Ridgefield, Connecticut:

Where to begin...thank you so much to you, all of the warm-hearted handlers, Addie and Maggie. You all have played such a crucial role in our united response to our students' pain. This week has been my most trying and sad as a principal. My heart breaks for all of those affected. Addie and Maggie came to us when we were in pain and taught us all that we can express and survive our grief.

Being an animal lover, I of course thought it would be wonderful to have the dogs here. But to truly witness the high level of training they exhibit, their patience, the warm affect they have on those suffering was miraculous. Saying thank you does not feel like an adequate way to express my gratitude, so I will end with these two quotes.

There is no psychiatrist in the world
like a puppy licking your face.

-Ben Williams

Dogs are our link to paradise.
They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon
is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring- it was peace.

-Milan Kundera

Principal
Ridgefield High School

A Special Thank You from Micah's Family Print E-mail
Micah's new van The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs ministry would like to send a big ‘thank you’ to all who donated to and increased awareness about the ‘LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs for Micah’ Fund.

Micah is a young boy who fell out of a two-story window when he was 1 year old. He was diagnosed with severe traumatic brain injury, seizures, blindness, and quadriplegia. Micah is fed through a feeding tube and is cared for by nurses during the day and by his mom at night.

On July 18th, 2013, Ladel visited Micah and his family. When he was placed on Ladel, his eyes opened wide and he began to joyfully squeal. Lauraine, Ladel's handler, explained that Micah was feeling Ladel's fur, hearing Ladel breathe and her heart beat.

As he got older and grew more, his mom began having a tougher and tougher time getting him in and out of her car. Because of this, the family was in desperate need of a handicap-accessible van.

Thanks to your generous donations, enough money was raised for Micah’s mom to obtain a handicap-accessible van. The family joined members of St. Matthew Lutheran Church (Barrington, Illinois), its Special in God’s Eyes program, and Ladel Comfort Dog this morning to thank St. Matthew and everyone who donated.
