A Shelter Dog That Has Brought The Gift To The Ill

Photo by KARK

A little dog named Katie who was rescued from an animal shelter has brought the gift of love to the dying while they wait for the time to expire.
Katie’s owner Luba Cook has been bringing her friend with her to see the hospice patients at the Fountain Lake Nursing Home for the last five years now.

Luba Cook said: When we come into a nursing home, you've seen her straighten up in her stroller, and she knows it's time to offer sympathy or love or whatever a patient might need. I believe the Lord has blessed my life and this is something that I feel I can do to maybe return some of the blessings that I have.

I too have a child who is terminally ill and I watch how my one dog will just go and lay besides his bed as if he is guarding over my son. Dogs are amazing when it comes to their senses of just knowing that something is wrong. As Luba said; she calls her a gift from God. This article has touched my heart today, so that’s why I would like to share it with you.
