    I have a couple of friends dealing with PTSD at different stages and wanted to share this. If you are a dog lover, you'll also appreciate this.

    That was cool. It is amazing what animals can do. Our cat, for instance knows the difference between a 50-cent phone cord and a $72 power cord for a discontinued laptop that has to be special ordered. Guess which one he's chewed... three times?

    Jacob is hot, too, but that's besides the point.

    Thanks for commenting, guys. Maybe a bump so more will see this. Nice break from the politics.

    Labs 'think' they are people. ( they really are but dont tell them that!)
    Dogs are the best thing ever invented!

    I must agree, perhaps a first. Dobermans also think they are people - they are highly intelligent and want respect.
