The Healing Power of Pets

Great article on using service dogs to help veterans with PTSD.  There have already been studies on how training dogs helps prisoners, and now this.  Gives even greater meaning to the title of Temple Grandin's book Animals Make Us Human.  And while the effect may be most pronounced with dogs, I believe it applies to other pets as well.
