I’ve used this photo in several places. It is my eldest (way back when), who experienced Iraq in a way a mom never wants. Because of young people like my son, Musher Rick Casillo does something a little bit different with his pups. He heads a non profit organization called BattleDawgs. The motto of this incredible group is ‘Helping Our Warriors one step at a time.’ When the team started in Anchorage, the handlers for the dogs were all in uniform. How awesome cool is that??
Please visit the website to see more of what this musher does to bless others. As a mom of a very young–then–US Calvary Scout, I cannot thank these people enough. Rick, may you and the dogs reach Nome safely and FAST!!!!
