LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A Lincoln "comfort" dog that has been to several national tragedy sites this year is now in Oklahoma to help victims cope with the devastation caused by a massive tornado.
Lincoln television station KOLN-TV reports that Moses has been sent to comfort those affected by the Boston bombings, a West Texas explosion and school shootings in Newtown, Conn.
Moses is part of Lutheran Church Charities National K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry.
Pastor Glen Keylon says Moses provides a lot of relief to people - especially children - when they are able to pet him during a tough time.
The massive tornado that tore through Moore, Okla., on Monday killed 24 - including 10 children - and injured more than 200.
