Dogs & PTSD

I know, I know... it's been a while since I've gotten my act together and made a quality post.  My apologizes.  It seems that as soon as November strikes I hit the ground running and don't stop until January each year.  I've had good blogging intentions mind you... I've taken HOURS of Winnie video trying to capture the moment that she unscrews the mighty Kong Wobbler but it always seems to happen when the camera isn't rolling. 

I'm so ticked I about this thing I wont even look at the camera.

Even my poor pup has suffered from my lack of free time.  We have gone on walks every day without fail until these past few weeks.  I know this girl has energy to burn so I load her down with a backpack and a few cups of kibble so she can get the most out of the exercise we do get. 

However, my real reason for posting today is because it's Veterans Day... Many of us don't even recognize the holiday but I think it's even more important to acknowledge where we've come from and where we're going since we are in fact still at war today. In honor of the day, TIME magazine ran an interesting article about Dogs and how they are helping soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Have a look. And when you're done thanking a Vet for their service, thank a dog for theirs! :-)

Everyone should honor the heroes(veterans) because that is why we are free. And take your time blogging. I don't have all the time either!

Thanks Peanut! It's nice to know that people will still stop in for a read even it it's been a few week. You're the best!
