Dog Tags

I don't always catch Oprah, but today's Oprah was one that I was glad that I watched. Glenn Close was on today taking about a program called Dog Tags. Here's some information about the program:
Soldiers are returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with disabling injuries that make it difficult to cope with the challenges of daily life. In order to provide much needed assistance, Puppies Behind Bars has started the Dog Tags program.
Dog Tags works to match disabled veterans with specially trained Labradors or Golden Retrievers who assist these wounded veterans and help them live fuller lives.
Puppies Behind Bars honors these soldiers by providing them with life companion dogs, who have been raised in prison, as a way of repaying these wounded men and women for their selfless service to our country.

To help the troop and assist in this program there is a great dog toy that you can buy and part of the cost goes to help the program. Its a sole of a military boot and is made in red, white and blue. For more information check and to place and order, check out this website:
