De-Stressing First Responders

Chou Chou Briard, AKC Therapy Dog Excellent, spent a  weekend with other therapy dogs at the California Office of Emergency Services. The dogs were there to de-stress FEMA workers, firefighters, and the National Guard -- deployed from all over the US to fight the Northern California fires. Some were just back from Puerto Rico, Texas, and Florida hurricane relief. They were exhausted, and all so grateful!
