Nebraska comfort dog in El Paso following mass shooting
A comfort dog from Nebraska made his way to Texas to help bring a small bit of solace to residents left shaken by a mass shooting.
The dog, Eddie, and his handler arrived in El Paso on Monday. Eddie is based out of Grand Island.
Eddie’s handler has posted updates from the trip on a Facebook page so that people can follow along. The most recent was a stop at the Walmart where a gunman killed 22 people and injured several others earlier this month.
Earlier updates include a picture of Eddie in line with five other comfort dogs.
“Got all my “mini-mes” ready to give away when we get to El Paso,” a post from August 11 read. “Sure hope they can bring some comfort to hurting kids! (First leg of journey done. Flying out of Denver today.)”
