Veterans Day

This coming Tuesday is Veterans Days. The town I grew up and now live in, has one of the largest Veterans Day Parades west of the Mississippi. Yesterday I went with our Guide Dog Group. The dogs did pretty well, considering all the loud sounds. First off is Colby is enjoying the parade: P1020750

Next we have Lomita:

P1020742

And finally, Loyola:
P1020743

The most touching part of the parade was when families of those who had died in Iraq walked with a poster of their loved ones picture, where they lived, when they were born, and when they died.  Everyone in the crowd stood and applauded.  I don’t think there was a dry eye when they passed.  I hope you will take the time on Tuesday to thank someone who has served and fought for our freedom.  We are blessed to live in America.

    What beautiful pups you have in your club!!

    My dad is a veteran, so I never have to go very far to thank a veteran on V-day. 🙂

    Haha…I just found out that my mom met Colby’s raisers last night. He was speaking at a homeschool meeting about dinosaurs. It’s a small world. 🙂
