Helping Udders thank you so much for thecooling vest! I think that it's wonderful
that you and the Soldiers' Angels work together to help all of us out. It
took Beny a few times to get used to the vest, but now its second skin to
him. I love the fact that I can take the ice packs out and put them in just
cold water and they will freeze up again. That helps out so much, especially
being out all night. A big plus is that Ben LOVES that toy. Hahaha..he runs
around with it trying to chew it to bits and pieces and it's still in one
piece! Thank you again for all of your support for us and with the Soldiers'
Angels! You are truly a blessing. I hope you are able to open the pics of
Beny with his vest on..if not please let me know and I will try sending them
JB. and MWD Beny!!!!
Hi Helping Udders,
I am sure you are familiar with my base. This is the base that ultimately
airevacs our soldiers out of the country. If you have a pulse, you have a
99% chance of survival. You have probably seen articles or videos/interviews
with folks that have come through our facility our staff that have worked @
the hospital. We care for Iraqi's and all military branches. We have over
8000 members stationed here.
Air Force and Army work together. There are 5 dogs in the Kennel. The Sergeant is in charge during the day already has a
cooling vest for his dog and he relates Chay loves it.
I am a nurse with the Air Force and compared to the last time I was here,
1.5 years ago, there is a marked decline in the traumas we see here. A very
good thing for all.
Give Petey and Tony hugs and kisses,
AF Nurse L
Faro is strutting his vest, boots, and Doggles!!! Now
the other handlers are jealous and want their own. With new handlers
in and the old ones gone...we are again in need for more boots, vests
Snacks are always good to go!!! Thank you all for
your support again!!!
After Erica's Kennel Received their vests:
Hey there. I just wanted to drop you a quick line. Thanks for all of your
help and remembering us when you send out your donations. We really
appreciate it. And I speak for every single one of my handlers and working
dogs when I say that. I sent the vests to my outlying FOBs and I told them
where they came from and my guys were speechless. It's just so nice to know
that people haven't forgotten about us over here. When we see some of the
things that we do, and we go a little while without talking to friends and
family back home, it's easy to see how disconnected we are from our family
and the very country we fight so hard to keep free. I just want you to know
that I truly appreciate your help. I'm nearing the end of my tour here, but
I have told ALL my handlers about your website.
I sent a little note to all the email addresses that you sent with the
vests. You had a line on there saying to send any messages to both emails
and the only other one on there was yours. So you got copy of my messages as
well. I would have sent pictures, but we are super limited with the
bandwidth thing (I don't understand why or what, I just know that I can't!).
Maybe when I get back to Germany I can send some pictures of some of the
stuff we did during my tour. I'll remember to do that.
Again, thanks for everything. Take care.
Yes, I'm a MWD handler. My dog's name is Hena.
We're deployed right now, but I'll see if this computer will let me upload a
photo (you know I always have one on me!). A friend of mine gave me a
toy that your company makes and Hena absolutely loves it. More than
anything else! I can hardly get it back from her most of the time.
Hena and I have been together for about 9 months now.
This is our first deployment working together, but we were both in Kosovo
last year just with another dog and handler. Our kennels here are
good. I'm the kennel master and I have a total of 9 teams including
myself. I chose your toys because I know they're durable. We
have people send us chewy toys or small rope toys but I think they forget
that we have big dogs that chew on things for a living.
I don't expect you to refund my money, but if you insist,
I would rather you take that money as a donation. I know of your
company and what you do for handlers. I greatly appreciate it. I
hope the picture gets to you. Thank you again. Hena looks
forward to the toys! Also, if you have any other questions, just shoot
'em my way. Take care.
SSG E.K. and MWD Hena
My name is J---- B------, i am currently deployed to
received a package some time ago containing a cool vest and your special tug
toy. I want to apologize that it has taken so long for my reply. First i
want to say that i had the pleasure of meeting Kory while i was attending
the SSD course after his. It was defiantly a sad day to hear that one of our
own had passed. I truly appreciate you and your friends taking the time to
take care of my SSD Coffee. Coffee is a female chocolate lab who enjoys
working. We spend our days trying to save lives and make an impact for the
soldiers over here. By sending us this vest you have given us that little
extra time working that we might need to make sure our friends and loved
ones make it home alive. I also thank you for the Udder Tug, Coffee loves
it. Once again i am sorry it took so long to reply. Thank you once again for
all your support.

Thanks again from Gabe, Lewis and Beny....
