    Holly's half dozen aids Wounded Warriors - Dog Bless

    Meet Holly’s Half Dozen. These six Golden Retriever pups were born on June 24th and have already begun very important work — helping to heal the invisible wounds of our Nation’s Combat Veterans. Recovering Service Members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Bethesda, MD are engaged in the critical task of socializing the pups through puppy petting. The litter of five girls and one boy will spend the next two years lifting the spirits of Wounded Warriors and giving them a therapeutic and purposeful mission. By volunteering to train the pups through the Warrior Canine Connection program, these Warriors will both address their symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress and prepare the pups for future lives as service dogs for their disabled comrades.

    Might as well drop a plug for Wounded Warrior Project.

    Some camera activity to watch. I watched some of the training yesterday.

    Puppy Cam News: (7-24)

    Puppies will be fed 3x a day starting today. Today's schedule will be *roughly* 9:15, 2:15 and 7:15. I am hoping to have training occur around the 2:15 feeding time. If not, it will happen before the 7:15 training time. I ...am not yet sure if/when the pups will go outside. It might be too hot this afternoon to put them out. We will just have to wait and see.
