Our church, Holy Cross Lutheran in Collinsville, has a Comfort Dog named Esther. She came to us last fall and has been a blessing to many as she goes to nursing homes, hospitals, schools, places where tragedy has occurred etc, any place where people need a bit of love and kindness. She turned 2 today and the congregation threw her a party.
Here's a photo of Esther with all the Holy Cross people who take turns as her handlers.
And she was surprised by her Comfort Dog friend, Sheba who came to help celebrate. Sheba lives and works in Washington Missouri
Then everyone had a chance to pet Esther
Dogs make people happy
