this is so true...in the service of others not to be noticed...I have the privilege of knowing some truly amazing people who really actually serve without the possibility of $$ or attention for it. That in and of itself speaks wonders.
Salute to Service Dogs! - pinner note: some dogs are chosen as candidates later in their youth, including from shelters! A significant portion of service dogs in the US are not trained by programs, but by their own handlers, and those who are socialized and trained properly do just as well as dogs who are trained from birth.
