A Three-Year-Old Golden Retriever Comforts People At Funerals

Training a dog is not an easy task. But, sometimes our fur friends can do some amazing things when trained.

An Oklahoma funeral home trained three-year-old golden retriever Bennie for a very special and not at all easy task:

  • He brings tissues and comforts people who have lost their loved ones. Yes, that’s right.

“For people, this is a confusing place and awkward weather, and its presence relieves stress and anxiety. He loves people, is very calm and gentle, doesn’t jump, but approaches people and lets them cuddle him,” said company manager Deana Kelly.

Bennie is a certified therapy dog who, in addition to bringing tissues, also knows how to kneel, bow his head, and even “pray”.
