Rim of the World Comfort Pets

Therapy Dogs!
Barry Robinson gave a brief overview of the Rim of the World Comfort Pets “Therapy Dog” program – and all of the work they do with the VA. They spend a lot of time in the PTSD department – and from what they say, the dogs are a hit with the Veterans!
Barry told us a story about a woman in palliative care – that Chelsea (the dog!) came to know. When Grackie passed away, Barry and Chelsea went to her service at the Veteran’s Cemetery.
Jen Horton gave us a few details about the program, Katherine Walker discussed their upcoming fundraiser – the annual “Hot Dog Barbeque!”
A thought:  Have children read to a dog! Dogs don’t criticize!
A great visit with an amazing group of beautiful and gracious dogs – and their people who do amazing things for our Veterans, children and people who are often at a very dark spot in their lives.
