As we relax and enjoy or labor day weekend, please take a moment to think about working animals. Our very own Eagles Wings Service Dogs has taken in shelter dogs and trained them for service to individuals with disabilities. It is heartwarming to see the bond between the dog and their owner. It is also amazing the things dogs can be trained to do: open door, pick up items, bring the phone, help remove and put on clothing items, pull a wheel chair, pull Timmy out of the well :).
How about horses? Elephants? Camels? etc. You can even include cats who keep the mice and rats away.
My favorite part of the working animal is their companionship. I just love coming home from work and be greeted at the front door. No matter the day I have had, they always make me smile.
