TEAM OF THE WEEK

CalebIn light of one special therapy visit in a hospital waiting room with Caleb, a Tennessee family now has a Schnauzer of their very own. While awaiting the outcome of their young child’s surgery, the family was weighed down by stress and worry. It seemed as if nothing could have helped them, until Caleb came along. The parents were amazed at how distracted and happy their children became in Caleb’s presence. One child however, was fearful of dogs. By the end of the visit his mother was shocked to find him sitting with Caleb on his lap, looking down and smiling at him. Months later, Caleb’s handler Sue Daulton encountered the family. The mother hugged and thanked Sue for that visit and told her that Caleb was the reason they now had a Schnauzer of their own.
