I received the sweetest thing in my email from "Natural Balance Pet Foods"! They brought to my attention a float that was in the Rose Parade on New Year's Day. This specific float honored military working dogs and their handlers.
From email -
float itself featured a replica of "The Military Working Dog Teams
National Monument", which will be located in San Antonio, TX this fall. This is the first time military dogs will be recognized with such a high honor! We are proud to be one of the companies who sponsored this important monument."
Now, the really touching part, in my opinion, was that during the parade, they reunited Army Sergeant First Class Eric Pazz with his wife and son, three months before his discharge date from Afghanistan.
