Franken’s first goal: Dogs for vets

service dogI knew that there was more than one reason to like this guy. See the CNN article on Al Franken’s desire to use service dogs to aid wounded veterans. Sounds like a great plan to me–short of bringing the troops home, anyway.

  1. GO AL!! I have done two things for my community. I rescued a two year old,Blond Alaskan Husky, street dog and trained her as a Therapy Dog to take to Vet Hospitals and nursing homes and schools and she is also an excellent library reader dog for children.Saint Francis Service Dog training school in Roanoke,Virginia is TOP of the service dog list, however there are hundreds of Vets that receive much joy just from a visit from a warm soft nose of some one else companion dog. Saved a dog, made a person happy with dog and human visit. Keep up the good deeds Al. (I am a 73 years of age lady. It is never to late to do a kind service.

    • That is wonderful, Delores. Both that you rescued a dog in need and trained her to do such great work! Kudos!! I hope the kindness can spread…

  2. way to go and thanks for all you do to help us veterans, not all veterans are so lucky to get a service dog. your right, kindness is never to late and does not cost anything…
