On this Independence Day I think that we should remember to give back a little to some of America's most loyal troops! In honor of our GOD GIVEN FREEDOMS give that old decrepit pooch of yours, or your animal of choice an extra hamburger or two this holiday weekend. And if we can, try to contribute a little to the cause of the returning war-dogs that have been injured or lost their companions in battle. Hat Tip to Sono Annoiato
