I've got a couple more pictures of Tess that I'll try to post tomorrow. Tess really is a very gentle and comforting girl. Zoe seemed to be doing some of her best greetings with the firefighters and state troopers who were on duty everywhere. The whole scene was surreal. . .a beautiful day. . .lovely old New England town. . .memorial sites with flowers, candles, stuffed toys etc. . .camera crews. . .and funerals and processions ongoing throughout the day. Many people did seem comforted by the dogs and appreciative of their being there but one wishes that there was something more that one could do.

Thumbs up

Bravo! Brought more tears. Proud to see our local golden angels giving comfort also.

My girls were thinking our Tugg (5 months old) would bring comfort at the vigil, but he's not a therapy dog. He'd probably just chew & jump on everyone.

Keep up the wonderful work!
