He is facing a long road to recovery which will include rehabilitation and a trip back home to California, but on Thursday there was one special friend that brought a lot of comfort to Michael.

This special friend is named Lois from LLC K-9 Comfort Dogs, an organization that dispatches dogs to help after tragediess, she is a golden retriever who can be seen below propped up on Caster’s hospital bed.

“You kind of look to the dog for some clarity,” he explained. "Your mind's totally on what you need to do going forward and the tragic nature of this event. And they bring the dog there and they’re so innocent."
