Man and His Best Friend Ever!

I have a very dear friend who looks for and saves wonderful pictures and words to share with me and I do frequently share them with you. And today I’m sharing another collection of those. They are ones that I’m sure will move all of you as much as they did me. I do hope you enjoy them as well – I know that they did move me to smiles and tears. These are of our soldiers and their wonderful four-legged friends!! Get your handkerchiefs!

When I was teaching American history, I brought in a dog handler (with dog) from Vietnam to tell the kids the story of the dogs in Vietnam. His dog was a descendant of that dog. 2900 dogs served in Vietnam and many were killed. They were indispensable in many situations and great companions.

Service dogs are remarkable. I saw a news story a few days ago about a police dog that attacked the bad guy and took the bullet intended for its master. The handler and his family were torn up about it. Very poignant.

The loyalty and trust that the dogs have is amazing. And what they can do is also quite amazing. What devotion. Thank you for a meaningful post. Have a great weekend, Sylvia. Mickie :)

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
