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.

“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.)”
