Miss Mini Cooper, “The Baby,” turns 8 years young today. It is hard to believe because she is still such a kitten in many ways. Playful and verbose, she is a pal to all and just wants attention and a good cuddle.

And we can never forget the animals and humans that have served and continue to serve in the armed services so that we can live freely in this country.
This is the Washington DC area’s first monument honoring women in the military which was unveiled at the Women In Military Service For America Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery in October 2020. It is called ‘The Pledge.’
Commissioned by the nonprofit US War Dogs Association and sculpted by acclaimed artist Susan Bahary, The Pledge is a bronze statue that depicts a kneeling servicewoman locking eyes with her working military dog.
In addition to being the DC area’s first statue to honor all servicewomen, the statue is also the first monument in the nation to honor female military working dog handlers.
