You might not recognise this face but he’s been a key player in many recent court cases; including that of Cardinal George Pell. This is Coop; an emotional support dog who sat with witnesses while they were giving evidence in the committal hearing. In fact, the Labrador has shown such an incredible ability to provide comfort to people experiencing extreme stress, anxiety and nerves that what started as a trial, became a permanent appointment. And while Coop may never truly understand the magnitude of his contribution, there’s no doubt those brave witnesses will be forever grateful that these gentle eyes made an incredibly confronting time just that little bit more manageable. Thanks Coop.
