I’ve written here previously about Lutheran Church Charities’ wonderful Comfort Dogs Ministry.
If you’re unfamiliar with these wonderful K-9s and what they do, you can find out more about them here.
Most of the dogs have their own Facebook pages, and are very good about posting photographs and status updates.
This week, some sad news regarding one of the pooches came to light. Ladel Comfort Dog recently had a mass removed from her mouth. The diagnosis is squamous cell carcinoma. Unfortunately, the vet was not able to get all of it since it has grown around her jawbone; Ladel will undergo further surgery on the 27th in hopes the entire mass can be removed.
You can follow Ladel on Facebook here.
I’m keeping Ladel, her handlers, and her doctors in my prayers. If you’re so inclined, maybe you’ll do the same.
