K9 Comfort Dog 

 

COMFORT DOG UPDATE

Rhoda would like to once again thank our congregation for bringing her to us. She is happy, healthy and busy bringing the comfort and peace of our Savior to many. This April 15th marks her third birthday – and almost two years of Rhoda being with us – the time flies! We will be celebrating Rhoda's birthday with cake after church – and, perhaps, a special bone.

 

Members of the Comfort Dog Team and Rhoda are currently going to Community Memorial Hospital four days weekly. We visit the medical/surgical floors, the birthing center, the in-patient rehab center and behavioral counseling. We are also visiting St. Joseph Hospital of West Bend twice weekly – visiting in medical/surgical and cancer treatment.

 

Other weekly activities of Rhoda include visiting Cedar Creek, the Arboretum, and Silverado – with monthly or bi- monthly visits to Dickson Hollow, Rivers Bend and Villa at Bradley. We have two handlers that have taken training at Luther Manor and serve there several times monthly. That number will be increasing soon as we have a new handler – Caryn Uebelacher. She comes to us as a former handler for Zoey Comfort Dog at Concordia. Caryn is also going to serve at Luther Manor – and other locations. We are truly blessed to have a team of faithful and hardworking handlers. Rhoda loves each one! (and her Frisbee).

 

Rhoda also visits several congregational members in their home or in the hospital. We continue with many special requests – such as school presentations, funeral, military events, community events – whatever comes up where we feel that Rhoda may be a help. Rhoda  enjoys attending the  worship services and is greeted by many members, especially the children.

 

Congregational members of our team are Nancy Brandon, Pastor Timmermann, Stareen Troeger, Seth Tomson and Ray and Peggy Pitroski. Please contact any of us if Rhoda could be of help.
