Service

Months ago I came across a puppy cam that led me to - Warrior Canine Connection - an organization that pairs service dogs with combat veterans.

The dogs are trained from birth to two years old. They live with a volunteer foster family and are taught to help in more ways than I can count.

Check them out at their site and on Facebook.









I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.

I've always been a little afraid of dogs, but when I see them being such loving companions, it warms my heart.
