The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs nonprofit from Illinois came to the rescue in a big way for Las Vegas. This organization provides Golden Retriever therapy dogs for people in hospitals that have been struck by tragedy.
There are currently about 23 states that have trained Comfort Dogs ready to help during crisis situations. The organization aims to fly in these dogs to help within 24 hours of the crisis. After the Las Vegas tragedy the organization knew they had to act fast. By Tuesday morning 19 comfort dogs had already arrived in Las Vegas.
The golden retrievers flew in from Illinois, Nebraska, Colorado, Arizona, California and Missouri. These dogs immediately went into the local Las Vegas hospitals to comfort each of the shooting victims. The dogs brought everyone so much joy and happiness.
In the video you can see how much these sweet pups made everyone smile. What an amazing organization!
Some pairings are just meant to be. When photographer, Ivette Ivens, decided to get a puppy, right after having had a baby, some would probably have suggested she wait. But Ivette knew the timing was just right…
And that’s because these adorable babies share the same birthday! So, Ivette knew this was a pair that was meant to be. (And we have to agree!)
The two bonded instantly, mostly over naps.
But as the adorable duo grew, they began to expand their bonding experiences. Sometimes they’d hang out and enjoy a sunny day.
Sometimes they just felt like holding hands.
And other times they opted for bath. Because that’s what brothers do, right?
And as precious as the pictures are, the photos capture more than just cute factor. As Ivette describes,
“It's honestly the most loving connection – pure, unconditional, irreplaceable and inseparable."
And love is a beautiful thing. Hopefully, these photos spread a little more love and cheer into your day!
“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7
My heart puddled over this big dog's love for his tiny baby bff!
This cute baby and her sweet dog will melt your heart!
