A 1 October survivor took home her new Golden Retriever puppy Monday night after she was chosen to be a recipient by a local breeder.
Cindy Nogales was nominated by her sister a few months back when she learned about the giveaway North Creek Goldens was doing.
"I've just been preparing," said Nogales. "I bought everything for my dog. I'm ready to take him home. It's very helpful. I think dog therapy is the best kind of therapy."

After our original story aired, Alexy Rollins with North Creek Goldens was flooded with nominations.
"We received over 100 nominations and we are still getting emails," said Rollins.
Because of that, Rollins has decided to give two Golden Retriever puppies away to survivors from every single litter going forward.
