Testimonials
I just wanted to tell you thanks. I've emailed all my fellow pet-lovers the following: "This isn’t my favorite topic, but I was so impressed by this place that I wanted to share it with my fellow pet-lovers. I went to the Chamblee one and it was nicer than any funeral home I’ve ever been to and the people were awesome. I hope you never need it, but if you do, you couldn’t ask for better care." Thanks again, Christy

To our Boris Bennett-Bowden:

  I met SSG Boris in the hellish land of Kabul, Afghanistan in 2012-2013. He was an Explosives Detection Dog (Bomb Sniffer). They had recently found out he had Arthritis in his hips. Since, I was Military Police, I got the joy of handling him until his retirement. Boris was set to be adopted by the 1 Star General in charge of our base. DUe to his age at the time and his condition, the General had changed his mind. IF a working dog is not adopted after retirement in a war zone, they are put to sleep. I had grown quite a bond with Boris. SO, I adopted him. We raised money to fly him home on commercial airline ($3000). We raised $1400, and my husband and I paid the remainder. He was off to a relaxing life for the first time ever. He worked in Afghanistan protecting our troops for 8 solid years. Over the years, he has been a primary part of my family. IF Boris did not like you, then you weren't in my life. HE was truly an amazing dog. He had never been around other animals and never been around kids. When we had our 2 children, Boris would sleep by their cribs as if protecting them. If he thought you were going to harm the babies in any manner, he would jump to the defense. As the kids grew a bit, he would let them lay on him and climb on him and in a rare occasion, he would even lick their faces as to say "I love you". These last couple weeks have been rough for him, but he deserved to rest. His watch is over. Another K9 will carry on your mission, boy. Gone but never forgotten. No one will ever have my 6 like you, buddy. Till we meet again. ----SGT(Shoemake) Bowden, Amber retired Army
