There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
they want to go fishing but ICE
bald eagles look grumpy on their best days but this is grumpy waddling and it is amazing
he walks over to the others in the last gif like “man this lake fucking sucks”
I’ve never realized how much eagles look like they’re wearing pants.
I don’t want to be in Phoenix anymore. There are so many people who are rude and full of themselves and treat me like I don’t belong. I want to run away. I want to leave this city and find myself in the mountains in the northern state. I don’t want to be around anyone or deal with anything, I just want to be with my dog and be nameless. Is that a bad thing?
And then there’s me, just digging myself a giant hole I can’t climb out of.
George W. Bush heard about Ft Hood, got in his car without any escort, and drove to the base. He was stopped at the gate to ask for directions to the hosp. then drove on. Bush requested to let him visit the wounded and the dependents of the dead. He stayed at Fort Hood for over 6 hours, until he asked to leave by a message from the White House. Obama flew in days later and held a “photo opportunity” session in a gym, and did not even go to the hospital.
GWB might have had his faults but at least he cares
I love W
This needs to be seen by everyone.
I can’t marry someone who doesn’t like country music.
