Thank you for taking Tess so she can work her magic. What a wonderful thing to do. You and Tess will be in my thoughts and prayers.

And really, what a way to comfort those of us on this site who are sitting at home so sad, and wishing we had the power to reach out but are too far away in miles or don't have a dog like Tess. Knowing that you are there with Tess being such a wonderful representative of the breed makes me very proud of both her and you. You are our connection.

Some Pets on Wheels volunteers want to do something.
We are thinking about bringing a group of therapy dogs on Friday.
If you were there, do you think there is a need?

Thank you for doing this. I burst into tears just reading it. It must have been so hard for you to do and such a kindness.

That is a beautiful thing you and Tess are doing. If I didn't have only one car that my boyfriend uses to get to work everyday I would go as well to pay respect. Connecticut is not far at all from me.

On Friday it is exactly a week ago that the shooting happened. If any day, the Friday would be very good. Do you have to come from far?

I see you are located in Baltimore, that is a long drive...

Bless you and Tess for your wonderful act of kindness. I know it was a hard thing to do. Seeing the aftermath of such a tragic event has to be extremely difficult. Thank goodness such kindness and graciousness in people still exists.

We are in Baltimore so it's about a 5 hour drive.
A group of us are looking into renting a 15 passenger van and loading it with therapy dog teams.

We were needed...Tess went up to people on her own, nuzzling their hands, staying at their side, looking up to them with her big brown eyes...she just did everything on her own, even went up to the State troopers.
There were more Goldens, I saw a few of the Chicago dogs, huge Berners, tiny pugs, and all of them doing a great job. In the end you don't even notice the camera's anymore, it's just the people and your dog. It is so impressive to be there, I can't even describe it. We will go back tomorrow, and certainly on Friday, when it is a week ago this horrible thing happened.
This...... and all of you going to help is why I love the Golden Retriever community. God bless you all.
