This cutie is Cooper! He's a service dog with Warrior Canine Connection, and I was lucky enough to meet him when he dropped by the studio with his handler, Rick Yount.
Rick tells us all about the program, which trains service dogs for wounded veterans. The unique thing about them is that the dogs are also trained by veterans. Cooper has fathered many of these service dogs, and his puppies are called 'Mini Coopers'! ;)
Check out the fascinating interview with Rick, plus enjoy the latest Animal Tales, learn about animal-related events in the DMV, and hear my pet-sitter horror story! It was quite a scary weekend for me, and you'll learn why in the podcast.
You can find out more about Warrior Canine Connection at warriorcanineconnection.org. They have a training facility in Boyds, Maryland and are always looking for volunteers.
