Providing Comfort in Newtown, Conn., plus Social Media Transmitted Disease

The K-9 Comfort Dogs of Addison, Ill., responded to last week’s tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn., by sending a group of dogs and their handlers to the New England village to provide comfort to residents and first responders. Operating through the Lutheran Church Charities, the group makes a difference by helping communities to grieve. Meet the team that plans to remain in town through Saturday, and find out about the organization’s many good works in the U.S. and abroad.

Blogger-in-Chief Billy Wheeler discusses a problem he has with Social Media Transmitted Disease, or SMTD. An admitted creature of cyberspace, Billy understands the virtual impossibility of policing “the Trolls,” those Internet users who seem to delight in spreading gossip and innuendo. Find out what’s got our favorite blogger up in arms in his latest Back Story.

Best In Show Daily invites you to share your knowledge and experience with our readers – among the most active participants in the dog game. If you’ve written an article you’d like to see published on Best In Show Daily or would like to pen one, please email me at dan@bestinshowdaily.
