How Does your pet add value to your life and community?

:

When my husband deployed to Afghanistan in March of 2011, there was a void in both Bella's spirit and my husband's spirit. After not seeing her hero for over a year, Matt returned home and it was apparent that the bond was not and never could be broken, no matter the time or distance. My husband only received minor injuries while deployed including a concussion from a RPG blast, however, like most soldiers returning home in this war, he lives with a form of PTSD. Bella is always his right hand pup, never leaving his side with an unbreakable bond. She has been a huge part of his therapy and will always be a part of our family. This picture was taken in April of 2012 at Matt's homecoming.

Love the bond between Bella and Matt! It's often hard to explain but you know it's there...
