If you think collecting for Star and Nancy and keeping them amused is not work, you just don’t know work when you hear it complained about. But I gotta say, traveling to Iraq as a therapy dog would be challenging. Sometimes the paper falls to the floor and I catch a couple of paragraphs.
Seems Budge and Boe are the first therapy dogs to be sent to Iraq to cheer up the soldiers. They are labs. I also read a story in the Wall Street Journal a few weeks ago about how some Iraq commanders won’t let soldiers feed or befriend dogs on the bases and sometimes these dogs get shot. Shot! For heaven’s sake, that’s awful. The handler of the therapy dogs said these guys are “stress sponges.”
Yeah. What do you think I am for Nancy and Star? A stress loofah!
