For those of you who haven’t met Sadie yet, she is an American Kennel Club black Labrador retriever who’s gentle, loving, and sweet disposition has enabled her to help comfort people who have lost a loved one.  Bereavement therapy dogs are used to help ease the pain of loss simply by offering their compassion.  Certified by Therapy Dogs International her job is to

“bring a smile to those who really need one, and to be a friend who helps them feel better, and hopefully feel a little less sad.”
