A firefighter’s best friend provides therapy to those battling wildfires

Good News Notes:

“For Kerith, supporting her firefighter friends was the least she could do as they battle the Woodward Fire.

On Friday morning, Kerith traveled to West Marin to join dozens of Marin County firefighters at the staging area for the Woodward Fire. She was greeted with hugs and smiles as she made the rounds to all the different fire trucks and firefighters getting their daily instructions on how to battle the 2,400-acre blaze that is burning in the southern end of Point Reyes National Seashore.

She also received a lot of petting from all her friends, since Kerith is not only a lovable Golden Retriever, but a licensed pet therapy dog.

‘She doesn’t know there is a fire. She doesn’t know there is COVID. So she just knew she was seeing her friends and was really happy to do so. For the firefighters, I think it really made their day,’ said Kerith’s owner, Heidi Carmen. ‘One firefighter from central Marin said, “This was the best base camp every because Kerith was there.”‘”
