Fabulous article Jeanne!

I would like to think that this is one area where Canada is ahead of the USA in their treatment of our military service dogs, but DD Meaganne has just burst my little bubble in that regard - apparently Canada is no better in this situation at all. How DISGUSTING of all of us!!

Those who serve our countries no matter where or how, should always be remembered and honoured whether they be 2 legged or 4 legged!

Kudos to the people in your government who are pushing for this bill to go through and become law!

This is really great. They also need to take care of those dogs when they have problems in their lives that were a result of their military service.

The bill was introduced into the House by representatives from Arizona and Minnesota (I think that was the second one) on June 11 so has been brought up in both senate and congress. ( I thought I had heard something about it, so I did a search)

Really glad to hear that someone is doing something to fix this!
