I just saw a program yesterday about how dogs are rescued and trained to be service dogs by female inmates . It a WIN for everyone involved. I'm SO sick of REPUBS cutting all these programs! 2 of the servicemen featured said, holding back tears, that they would be dead now if not for their dogs. Petition signed!

Noted. Signed. Dogs can be much better friends to us than we are to ourselves. They can tell when you're slippin' and will do anything to calm you, distract you, let you know that you are loved, especially when you need it most.

Dogs are man's best friend. And women's. These men and women have served our country and deserve the unconditional love that a dog can give. As the men and women heal from the trauma that they experienced Love will return to their hearts.

What a cruel waste to eliminate this program! Iraq and Afghanistan vets fought the wars Bush started, but his party's policy is to make sure that the ultra-rich pay no taxes that would go to help veterans and other such "deadbeats." Signed and noted, thanks Cal.
