Dogs Help Vets With "Invisible Wounds"

A small group of Bay Area veterans went on a retreat last weekend with their new service dogs.

A small group of Bay Area veterans went to a camp near Yosemite last weekend to participate in training exercises with their newly matched service dogs.

“She wakes me up from my nightmares,” said George Bravo, a Marine veteran from South San Francisco about his dog, Macy, the Union Democrat reported.

The dogs were from Operation Freedom Paws, a Gilroy-based organization that provides dogs to help veterans with conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

I've seen this sweet face before --- refresh my memory someone. No matter. Loooove this pup. Wish I could adopt him/her.

This dog came to Parkway's career day. His name is Ethan!

Well, there's been a lot of discussion within the district about whether or not Parkway should get a new campus as part of the Measure J funding. It's probably the most up in the air of the Measure J projects. Also, we now have a staff member at Parkway blogging about school events, so that's one reason why their events are featured on Patch. I highly encourage staffers and parents from other schools to get in touch with me about blogging as well.
