As some of you already know I work with a bunch of Veterans. Today is officially K9 Veterans Day and for all of you canine and hooman Veterans I would like to thank you for your service. I know we have had some K9 tripawds here, and we recently lost one. Thanks to our K9 Veterans, many of our hooman Veterans have been able to return to their families and for that I am so very grateful!

K9 Veterans Day  <–  Here is a great article on our K9 Veterans and how much they have helped us.

Thank you Jackie!! heart Well said and the pictures you selected are perfect!

And I do beleve the older black and white picture is a Bull Mastiff.  way-cool  “Back in the day” they were used as “guard dogs”.  Not because they were “aggressive”,’but because they knocked the “thugs” down and held them in place with slobbery kisses waiting for the owner to come.

STANDING OVATION TO ALL OUR SERVICE DAWGS AND HUMANS! 🙂

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Awww thank you for sharing! We agree, these doggies and their handlers define the word “courage.”

I missed this holiday on our calendar, oops. But to join in the salute, here’s a flashback story about the one and only lovely Lucca!

Yes, that’s right, that beauty got her wings and her leg back, I forgot to mention that. Special indeed.

In case anyone is interested, we’ve reviewed some great books about Lucca and other military working dogs:

Escape with Unforgettable Courageous Canines

Nubs: A Mutt, A Marine and a Miracle

“Top Dog: The Story of Marine Hero Lucca”

Thank you!  I got Top Dog to read after I read her story, I will check out the others too. Have been looking for something good to read and hadn’t been able to find anything lately.
