NORFOLK - You've likely heard blessing ships to protect mariners as they go to sea.

At Sentara Norfolk General on Thursday, blessings were passed over therapy dogs and their handlers.

Conducted by members of the Chaplaincy Services, the short, informal ceremony was a way of thanking them for the care they bring to patients, families and staff.
