I was recently captivated by a video post I saw on Facebook. It had dogs in the hashtags, so being the dog lover I am I checked it out. It was a short segment on the Queen Latifah show about a non-profit organization called Dogs on Deployment, that a military couple had created when they were both deployed at the same time. They realized that it would be a struggle to find a safe place for their dog while they were away serving our country, and that they weren’t the only people facing this dilemma.
I love the inspiring story behind the couple who created Dogs on Deployment and even more, the heart felt live reunion of a young soldier Jess and her dog Emma. I was teary-eyed and smiling, watching the them see each other for the first time in over a year. It’s worth a watch and definitely worth checking out Dogs on Deployment. If you have a loved one in the military and/or you love dogs, check out this sight and please share the love.
