From my Towhee & Ty litter sire's owner & breeder:




How can you help? For those that have inquired about helping with some "Golden Therapy," THANK YOU! The gathering in Sandy Hook is being coordinated by the Hudson Valley Golden Retriever Club.

But, something I was reminded of tonight as I was reflecting on my day, is that we all want to help when there is a tragedy such as this one. However, every day there is probably someone in our own town who has been involved in a car accident or might be suffering from disease. These folks need us, too. If interested in sharing your dogs loving spirit and a little bit of your time, explore your local therapy dog organizations, whether that is Therapy Dogs International or maybe Pet Partners or Delta Society and get your dogs certified. Then, let's all contact our local nursing homes and hospitals and children's centers and offer our services. Remember the old saying, think globally but act locally? I was never more reminded of that than I was today. We have an amazing breed with so much love to share!

We went again, and met up with theZ's. Two dogs is better than one...Being there is very unreal. On the one hand, the funerals that go on and on, on the other hand the trucks getting all the stuff out of the school, on the one hand the press, in all languages of the world, and on the other hand reporters telling me they are going home tomorrow. The Chicago group is going home tomorrow, too. And Christmas is just a few days away...

Here is Tess with a little boy from newtown, who was replacing their candle tribute with his sister: (Reuters )

Four-year-old Brody Sauli hugs a volunteer service "comfort" dog as his sister Amanda kneels to light candles at a growing makeshift memorial for the victims of the December 14 shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Sandy Hook village in Newtown

Such a wonderful and kind thing that you and Tess are doing. That photo is so emotional you can see just by being there that Tess is bringing so much comfort to the little boy in this time of need. Goldens really are angels sent to do a special job I'm sure of it.
