Thank you, “Doc” Blade Anthony, for your service. You guarded well the lives of your Marines in Iraq. Now, DeDe can help you put the personal PTSD demons to rest. DeDe will give you all the love and affection she has in her and help you come home.

Welcome back. Welcome home to your new lives, both DeDe and Blade. Semper Fi, Doc.

So wonderful and beautiful, Slings. They each rescued each other. I teared up but smiled at the same time. Thank you, Slings and Arrows!

Nice!

This afternoon my dog Hairy and I will go with our group, Faithful Paws, to visit a convalescent home. It is a place where people, mostly old people, must stay for weeks or even months while they recover from surgery or illness.

Most of them are very grateful for our visit and the staff says that it lifts everyones mood tremendously.

Ditter... you are doing such a good act! Kudos to you and Hairy. (I am assuming he is hairy, right?!)

Thank you, yes he is very hairy. We are looking for another place to visit as well. He must be clean and well groomed so it needs to be a time that is near to the 1st Sunday so I won’t have to bathe him so often, especially in the winter when he takes so long to dry. If I knew how to post pictures on FR I would do it but alas.......... ! Just looking at Hairy makes people smile. :)

Us Brown Water Navy types have a great love and admiration for our Marine brothers. Both our sailors’ and Marines’ health is in the hands of the Hospital Corpsmen. These are the first responders and they are revered by all of us. When the crap hits the fan, it's “Doc” who attends to your wounds and gets you ready for more detailed medical treatment. Semper Fi, Doc. Now it's time to attend your wounds.

Beautiful story. I so agree with you that dogs are God’s angels. They watch over us, love us, give us strength in life and ask for so little in return.
