This is 110% true and it's incredible how animals can sense the character of a human. Really was interesting watching how Moo's comfort levels would change dramatically depending on who was around him.
Military men and women are constantly rescuing and befriending dogs and cats in need in war zones. These animals give back as much good as they get. Support the organizations who work very hard to bring home the animal companions of our service men and women. It is the LEAST we can do for the people who put themselves in harm's way for the rest of us.
