Therapy dogs bring comfort to Newtown

Addison Strychalsky, 2, of Newtown, Conn., pets Libby, a golden retriever therapy dog, during a visit from the dogs and their handlers to a memorial for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims in Newtown Tuesday, Dec. 18, 2012. Psychiatrists say after the grief and fear fades, most of Newtown's young survivors probably will cope without long-term emotional problems, often through play. Among the challenges will be spotting which children are struggling enough that they may need professional help. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
