This lovely dog, Kerith has been making firefighters happy so far. The two-year-old golden retriever is a response therapy dog that is tasked with providing enough comfort to exhausted firefighters.
That’s a very important work right now, as firefighters now work extra-long shifts to contain the Woodward Fire that’s presently blazing in Northern California.
An Instagram account was created for this lovely dog and the Instagram handle is @kerith_the_golden_retriever. From the picture above, we can see that this friendly dog is really a great companion to others and she brings much joy to people around.

As days go by, firefighters keep risking their lives to save people they don’t even know or have never met. This dog provides comfort and stress relief to to firefighters. Kerith plays with the firefighters by greeting and waggling her tail. She also gives adoring eye contact and knows how to make people feel important. She is indeed a licensed 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. This was the best base camp ever because Kerith was there.Carmen
