Thankful for…unconditional love, at war

Last night, NBC Nightly News ran a beautiful story about a very special homecoming. It’s not about the soldiers who put their lives on the line every day to fight for our freedom, but about the dogs who helped them survive the emotional impact of serving combat duty.

Arthur Benjamin, whose organization American Dog Rescue paid for the strays that were brought from Afghanistan to be spayed and neutered, says, “There wasn’t one of the soliders, male or female, that didn’t cry when they saw their dog.”

When you hear the excited cries and see the dogs bound  into their soldiers’ arms and shower them with canine kisses, I bet you’ll have a tear in your eye, too.

I certainly did.
