I’ve been going through a lot over the last several years, struggling with some of the hidden wounds of war. I’ve been through multiple therapists and psychiatrists, and my cabinets look like a pharmacy. I met Blake Rashad after trying to find alternative ways to come to grips with my “new normal”. As such, the good people at vdogs.org have set up a fundraising campaign for me to receive my very own trained service animal. I can’t begin to describe how just being around these dogs has helped to change my outlook.
