Service dogs no joke


In his first piece of legislation as U.S. Senator from Minnesota, former comedian Al Franken is asking congress to create a pilot program to provide service dogs for injured veterans.

I’ve written about these amazing dogs before and have seen first hand how they can help wounded soldiers, amputees and those who are paralized cope with both the physical demands of every day living and provide emotional comfort.

Read this story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune to find out more about Franken’s proposal and the story behind it.
