A Pets For Vets Match Story

James and Bob

To the wonderful ladies at the Evansville Pets for Vets - THANK YOU!

Bob has brought light and joy into my life. You gave me exactly what I asked for and more, not just a companion but a best friend.

What about Bob?  Well, Bob is a Bassett Terrier mix. If he was a person I would say he was a mix of California cool and Jim Belushi funny. If I am down, he will chase his tail, or do the dying cockroach trick to make me laugh, or sometimes just put his head in my lap and listen.

He is my heating pad in bed and my greeter after work. No matter how tough the work night was his excited barking and tail wagging makes me smile.

He is the best and really is great therapy.

Thank you so much for the wonderful service you provide for veterans, and for my BFF Bob.
