I just discovered on Loving for a Living that today is K9 Veteran's Day. Depending on the state, it isn't in full swing, or even fully official, but in light of my recent posts (about Sgt. Rex, and about the Canine Members of the Armed Forces Act, for those of you keeping score at home), I figured I'd at the very least mention it!
Here's a helpful link to a petition, and also suggestions for letters that you can write, to get Congress to unilaterally acknowledge a day for K9 veterans.
Also in Sgt. Rex news, Senator Schumer has a petition his web site to bring Sgt. Rex to his forever home sooner and safer: http://schumer.senate.gov/Contact/sgtrex.cfm
