Battle Buddy

I was surfing the cyber-paw space this week and stumbled on an article titled "They Showed His Dog Leaning Against A Door, And Then It All Made Sense To Me."  As we read the article, I could see Dog Dad nodding his head in agreement.  The article was about Service Dogs for Military Veterans.

As we explored further, we found the site for the "Battle Buddy Foundation."  We read the information on the site and I noticed Dog Dad smiling at me.  We know lots of veterans and Dad could easily relate to the article from the people he knows.  We both think it was a pawtastic idea.  Dad knows that a regular dog like me helps him a lot, and he could imagine what trained dog could do for a person with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

We don't remember reading about this in any of our cyber-paw pals blogs.  We hope you enjoy reading about Battle Buddy and find this to be as interesting as Dog Dad and I.

Dog Speed,

Sherman & Dog Dad

there is actually quite a few groups out there training service dogs for vets - we saw a wonderful story on the news last night about a beautiful sheltie that has been trained as a service dog for a Vet who suffer with epilepsy after being wounded in Afghanistan. The dog can warn her the seizure is coming - that is amazing!

We've seen some articles about this too, including up here in Canada. It's a wonderful idea.

There have been some wonderful stories about the benefits of service dogs for vets.

I am also very grateful to hear more stories about seizure dogs for vets and non-vets. It has taken the news a while to get out, but their values is so important to children and adults.
