Field of Honor At Attention
Field of Honor ~ Attention!
When I saw this photo in The Fayetteville Observer my heart just melted. The "at-attention" dogs are part of the Cape Fear Dog Training Club. The members of the training club honor military and veteran Club members and their families at the annual Field of Honor event.
This was an ahh moment for me, a meltdown, as I have recently experienced a visit to the Field of Honor. Upon seeing 2,000 flags honoring our military servicemen and women and veterans so perfectly lined up, flying together in the breeze, you cannot help but be in awe, just as these obedient dogs seemed to be.

Therapy Dogs... - ...can get their start at Cape Fear Dog Training Club!
The Cape Fear Dog training Club is the oldest Kennel Club training facility in the state of North Carolina, getting its start in 1952. It is a not-for-profit American Kennel Club. They offer obedience classes to the public, since 1953, and use their proceeds to support the obedience and rally trials held each year in the spring.
Pictures from the Cape Fear Dog Training Club's archives of obedient, well-trained champions are amazing. It surely must denotes a lot of time and patience and know-how for the trainers to achieve the awards they have earned. And the champions are so beautiful!
Amongst their many attributes, they support training for therapy animals. Most of us have heard how animals can be trained for a variety of roles, taking folks with disabilities and perhaps giving them a chance for a more normal, less homebound life. What a terrific thing! I am in awe of those that have the patience and diligence and know-how to take a furry bundle and make a life-changing assistant therapy animal, focused on helping and assisting its owner.
Oh, no, not this guy again!
For some reason, he thinks he qualifies as a pet assisted therapy animal! Well, he is cute ~ so I guess that's some therapy!
This guy also showed up at Pet Assisted Therapy Animals ~ he knows how to get attention!
