Service Dogs

This story really touched my heart:

Dogs In Iraq & Afghanistan Receive Presents from Guide Dog Company
BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (CNN) --
 
An organization devoted to caring for dogs is hoping these gifts will brighten the holidays for military K-9s serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation donated some $2,000 -thousand in supplies including cooling vests for hot climates and "doggles" -- canine goggles which protect their eyes from sun and sand.
"So this is our way in the season of thanks and giving and hope and renewal to give back to the troops that have given so much for us. If we can help protect them by helping their canines, we have done our job," said Adirenne Sullivan of Fidelco.
Fidelco trains and provides guide dogs for the visually impaired.

The foundation says it understands the stresses on and the importance of military canines serving overseas.

That is so important. Those dogs make a huge difference and they need their special gear too.

I used to live in Connecticut and was good friends with a lady who was a puppy raiser for a number of Fidelco's service dogs - they are a wonderful organization.
