Just saw this on the Bonnie Hunt Show. Please check out this website. It's a great way to support our vet on this Veteran's Day. They provide service dogs to our vets to help make their life easier. I know we are all dog-lovers here and thought this was a great place to post it.

That's wonderful, I love our veterans. I know they recently tried to rewrite the ADA to not include psychiatric service dogs which was very upsetting. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to live with PTSD let alone physical injuries from the war.

I started a post on a similar program where the vets actually train the dogs for others as part of their therapt.

PSDs are still included, it is emotional support animals (dogs that are not task trained) which were clarified as NOT being service dogs :)
