This is an awesome petetion lets let the politicians know that we need this. Its a viable way to save lives.
Will get on it!!!!
I sure would love that last puppy!!! :)
Ya think? I've always stuck by my theory...that a spiritual and/or a trustworthy connection, is far better than anything clinical.
I am struggling with the VA right now with my PTSD Service Dog...they are waiting on a 'ruling' that does not reflect the current Title 38 Section 1714, Public Law 2009. Hopefully they will get their act together soon!
God bless and let's hope they do!! It is LONG OVERDUE!!! Thank you so much for your service and sacrifice. I am the mother of a son who committed suicide because of PTSD. He served in Iraq in 2003/2004. I pray you will do everything you can to take care of yourself!
Wendy Griffioen GOD BLESS YOU
I saw you on WWP Im in Dallas..
What is the ruling for ?
Ramon J. Montoya I replied with an answer...but it looks like they deleted it. Guess we are to just sign the petition and not inform people about whats really going on. I'll post on my WWP Discussion: PTSD Service Dog what I originally had here.
It is our human duty to help and love our sisters and brothers...espc. those that have been broken...either in spirit or in body...Let's do all each one of us can....Love & Light!
Thank you for sharing
my son is loviing his new puppy & yes 13 mths. in combat at the age of 19 , how do you come back ok?
al thanks for sending me this link.
Outstanding! A dog is the only creation on earth who will love you unconditionally...always!
This is so the truth!!!
I think , horses are another animal that is a stress reliever.
this is a win-win situation... so many soldiers, veterans returning with PTSD, depression, anxiety and a host of other mental health issues. Over 4 million animal shelters euthanized yearly.... let's partner them up, it's a WIN-WIN situation.....
Artie, thank you, that's very inspiring... I believe everyone knows someone directly or indirectly who has been affected by this drawn-out conflict... and dogs love you unconditionally... As Billy McIntosh said, dog spelled backwards is GOD ....
animals are great company for humans, if it helps the kids or adults who have autism, down syndrome, blind, deaf or any have health issues, why not for our heros who served for our country....
adog realy is mans best freind
My daughter has a therapy dog and trains him weekly. This is especially good for vets and I support them.
Hi aunt amelia, peanut is a therapy dog too, never thought about taking her to va hospital but I will now
I have always had a strong and close tie to MANY if not all of the pets I have shared my life with. They have brought to me a wonderful sense of companionship and love that all owners should have. I have even had a black cat that I named "Miff" that I deemed a "Familiar" because he was my shoulder cat. "Miff" went with me everywhere I went with the exception of my job. Undeniably the best and most loving animal companion I had ever had! I miss him...:-(
Sorry to here about the los of you miff. I have a old cat name sapson. He loves the hole family. Gust know thay do go to heaven.
