For the love of dogs......what do service dogs do?.......how much do you kids understand?.......here is a school project forwarded to us about Joe and K9 Freddie written by his daughter. Joe is a Canadian Forces veteran that received a service dog from Certified Master Dog Trainer George Leonard.....please share and enjoy......MSAR

"We are always unsure of exactly how much our children understand about things that have happened in our homes! Our 11 yr old brought this school project home bringing us to tears! We are blown away at how much she truly understands about what has gone on over the years. Just a reminder to talk to your kids, don't hide PTSD!" from Shari (Joe's Wife)
