From War to Wisdom, The story of Kenny Bass and Atlas, the Wonderdog


Lots of people in our world underestimate the relationship between animals and humans. A widely held belief is that people should have pets just because they add more fun to our lives and are nice to have around; however, this is absolutely not the case! We’ve seen so many examples of how owning a dog or a cat or any kind of pet can leave a positive and big enough change in people’s lives, no matter what kind of pet they own

Of course, having a pet is a gate to endless fun for all members of the family. Still, we should recognize all the ways that our pets can and do help us with. Making our lives better is what they live for
