Our own dogs bring comfort and joy into our daily lives.  The simple act of being present and full of love is part of their powerful nature.   Over the weekend, a unique group arrived in Newtown, Connecticut to offer comfort to the community through the presence of Golden Retrievers. These particular dogs are called Comfort Dogs. They are fully trained service dogs by the non-profit charity K9 Parish Lutheran Church Charities.

This charity offers the special and unique healing presence that only a dog can offer during times of trauma.

Big Wags wants to highlight the good work of the K9 Parish Comfort Dogs and share some photos of the lovely dogs and the people they have comforted after the atrocity at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
