Walkin' The Dog

They're taking their dogs for a walk...across the country.

John and Kait Seyal began a few days ago on the east coast...and are in the middle of a 3200 mile walk to San Francisco.

They're trying to demonstrate the benefits of therapy dogs, to provide everything from emotional support to stress relief.

"We go into hospitals, nursing homes and childrens' homes, and we do visits and comfort for people," John Seyal said. "It's a simple thing, but it provides a great deal of comfort and emotional support for people in challenging circumstances."

The Seyals were in Walker Thursday, and crossed into Ohio via Belpre.
