UPDATE: 8/7/10 – We were able to send each one of these dogs a cooling vest, however we are still paying for them. Each vest costs $225. If you would like to help, please see our contact page for details.
Dear Mikel,(owner of Helping Udders)
I just received the package that contained the cooling vests you sponsored, from Ms. Susan. I would first like to thank you so much for going through the trouble and getting such an expensive necessity for my working dog, Hera. Hera is a jet black Belgian Shepard who will really get some use out of this vest. The heat in Afghanistan is really wearing down on her. I really do appreciate you kind generosity towards us as a Working Dog team in Afghanistan. This vest will really help us complete missions faster and better now that she’s protected. Thank you and Ms. Susan again so very much.
