Disabled Veteran here : -) I have two beautiful four legged babies here. They hooked up a few weeks ago. Pretty soon I'll have over a dozen more. If you're a veteran and you want one, I'm crazy over pets for veterans. Call me rdioaktv2u2@yahoodot youknowwhat we can discuss terms of delivery.

I have a very dear friend with PTSD. His Service Dog is a blessing, to him and his wife. The therapy works very well and it shows in their interaction together. This is a very REAL need with a great and easy fix. Compensation should be approved immediately!
