This is my favorite story of the day!

This is a story I really wanted to share because of what it represents.

The students went back to school at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for the first time – and waiting for them – were some amazing therapy dogs from the Humane Society of Broward County. The dogs spent time at other schools in the area as well. They are providing comfort and relief to those students.

That’s what dogs do. Therapy dogs. Our dogs. Our pets. All of them. They give us unconditional love – and for these kids who have gone through hell – those dogs gave them something to smile about, something to take their mind of what happened – if only for a moment.

The Humane Society of Broward County released photos of students petting their new furry friends, who joined them in classes all day while providing “unconditional love,” the Humane Society wrote on Twitter.
