I had a bunch of junior high kids write letters to the soldiers at the Red Cross Walter Reed before Christmas! Bit of a small world. I wonder if any of them went to soldiers you and Layla work with.
Of course they did!! I saw many cards up on walls in soldiers' rooms, and I just know there were some from your kids!

I'm so glad your vet was at last acknowldged!!! Your Dad or your Mom?

(by the way, Chris, I think I remember you asking a question about the tips of Layla's ears going gray - I've never seen anything like that! It's quite pretty.)
We think she carries a rare graying gene.

Congrats, Layla, for your dedicated service! You are doing an important job and I'm sure the vets appreciate your caring and compassion. By the way, I love your photo; you are adorable and I'll bet you cheer up every vet you visit!
