Happiness is a cold nose and a wagging tail

There's a great piece on the CNN website about service dogs who help veterans with PTSD.

While I don't have anything resembling PTSD, the past few years of this Army wife's life have been rather challenging at times. My faithful canine, Chocolate the wundermutt, has literally walked me through some of the darkest of days. There's nothing like a brisk 2 mile walk to clear the mind and refocus the senses. When my husband's physical pain and mental fatigue rendered him bedridden for days on end, Chocolate was right there beside him. I don't know what we'd do without her.
