National K-9 Veterans Day

I recently saw a blurb in Woman’s World magazine about a day to celebrate the four-legged soldiers who support our troops, and I was immediately onboard.  Dogs (and other service animals) make an enormous contribution to the human race, not only in the Armed Forces, but as companions and guides.  If you’ve read COUNTRY STRONG, you’ve already met Trooper, J.P.’s canine pal, one of my favorite characters in the “Country” series.  My own two rescues, Mowgli and Tule (pronounced Toolie), have seen me through some challenging times, and I’m sure many of you could tell similar stories about that special critter–or critters–that made a difference in your life or the life of someone you know.

You can check out the Support Our Troops Military Paws Support Program at SupportOurTroops.org/k-9-soldier-treats, where you will find lists of items to donate as well as opportunities to support soldiers and their families.

Naturally, our local shelters are always in need of donations, too–not just money, but food, of course, and cleaning supplies, such as bleach.  

I’ll be back with more blogs soon.  In the meantime, I hope you’ll reach out and pat your pet(s)–and tell ’em I said howdy.

    I live in South Lyon, MI outside of Detroit and there is a war dog memorial cemetery in our town. I went to a funeral a couple of years ago for a war dog who had been retired and later died of cancer. They brought him across the state with an escort of many jeeps to be buried here. It was a very moving ceremony.
