Today we received an email from Mike Lemish, a researcher of ours who has a special interest in military working dogs, and who I have written about in the past. Now, isn't that a cute dog?
Sedona had her picture taken with Santa to help support the Falmouth Animal Shelter in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Over eight years old she wouldn't stay still - but the photographer caught her on the fly - notice the ear and tongue.
A special hello and Merry Christmas to all my tracker friends in Australia! Thank you all for your support down under- I really do appreciate it. The efforts you have taken to recognize your friends that served in Vietnam and were left behind is incredible.
For all the Vietnam Dog Handlers - thank you for your service.! I have not forgotten you or the dog that you worked with.
Let us not forget the dog teams that are working for us every day to secure our liberty and work for our safety. If you want to help out, check out the Space Coast War Dog Association (www.scwda.org) and contact Sheri Wells. If you are interested in adopting a retired military working dog please check out www.militaryworkingdogadoptions.com and contact Debbie Kandoll.
For those of you without a dog - consider having one. They will always be there for you.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Vietnam Dog Handler Association
Merry Christmas back to you, Mike!
