Dogs Make It Better: Goldendoodle Puppies Bring Joy to Sandy Hook Survivors

Three weeks after the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy, Laura Feinstein, a teacher at the school, received a letter from a breeder in Texas. She had a litter of nine Goldendoodles. They were born Dec. 14 — the same day as the massacre. The breeder wondered whether there were any “Sandy Hook staff, families, victims’ families, first responders, or anyone in the community affected by the tragedy who might find some comfort in taking on a pup.”

There were. Feinstein responded to the breeder, saying that survivors would be delighted, according to a story she wrote about the affair forΒ WTOP.

“I just knew this was going to be a new beginning for my family,” she writes.
