** We love our pets at OGTV and to celebrate National Pet Day, we are sharing this memorable story about a wonderful therapy dog, Spartacus, that helped kids cope with the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook. **

Some people might be a little intimidated by his size at first, but Spartacus has a heart of gold!
