This comes timely with the recent articles I read about the September 11th dogs that are still around after helping in the search and rescues on that horrible event. In our local newspaper this weekend there was also an article about a military dog that lost his partner but is not teamed with a wounded Vet and is acting as his therapy dog.
You all know how much I love my Chloe dog and have toyed at the idea of putting her in therapy dog training. I guess I need to move ahead soon and maybe put the computer down for a few hours a week and focus on that. Needless to say, I want to share with you all, dog owners or not, about the Hero Dog Awards and ask your support in voting for your favorite dog.
What are the Hero Dog Awards
The American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ were created in 2010 to celebrate the remarkable bond between dogs and people in a positive way. This annual national competition searches out and recognizes America’s Hero Dogs, who unconditionally avail themselves to us in so many important ways, whether it’s saving lives on the battlefield, lending sight or hearing to a human companion, providing therapeutic support to children suffering from cancer, or just greeting us with a wagging tail at the end of a hard day.
One dog story I like:
While I really have a hard time picking just one I wanted to share one dog story first and how a pet food company is involved in this great cause. I also am supporting this particular dog as my husband is a former Naval Officer. He has many friends who are still in the Navy, some even still deploy, and may have had their lives saved by these hero dogs.
Royal Canin is a global leader in pet health nutrition. As a sponsor of the Military Dog Category, they want your help in voting for CDW Carlos, the dog in the running to win it all! NO FACEBOOK page needed, they do ask for your email to vote however.
