Help Get Service Dogs To Veterans With PTSD!

Filed under: TrainingDogAmazing

get-servicemembers-dogs-petition.jpg

There's a great petition out there right now that needs your signatures!

It's about trying to get trained service dogs to servicemen and women suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

The petition said:

"The love and help of a trained service dog can reduce the suffering of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since the Federal Government accepted the service of each member of the American military, the Federal Government has a moral responsibility to do everything in its power to heal the wounds incurred in that service, including psychological wounds. Please do what you can to urge Congress to provide the funding necessary to train and provide service dogs as faithful friends and aids to the Veterans who need them.

Please go to gooddogsheal.org for more information.

And also at Good Dogs Heal on Facebook."

Dogs are literally the best thing ever.

There's not much more you can say.

A service dog is not only trained to help but they offer a form of companionship that nothing else can replace.

The petition has just over 4100 signatures as of this writing. Let's get them way over their goal of 10,000!

Please help get these dogs to veterans by signing the petition HERE!

Could The Bison Be America's Next Bald Eagle?

Filed under: PolitikBison

Western lawmakers hope so!

Senators in Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and even Rhode Island have all thrown their support towards the The National Bison Legacy Act - legislation that would introduce the bison as America's national mammal.

Bison are the largest land mammal in North America and were once roaming the continent in the tens of millions.

But before President Teddy Roosevelt's intervention, the population was less than 1,000. Today, it is nearly half a million.

Legislators hope that the act will raise awareness on the bison's impact on America's cultural history.

So, will the bison be right beside the bald eagle someday?

We'll find out soon enough!
