About 20 percent of veterans come home with invisible war wounds, known as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Many have been paired with dogs specially trained to help them cope. On this Veterans Day, let's take a moment to think about the men and women who are struggling to leave the battlefield behind, and to thank the dogs who are by their sides.

The Legacy of 9/11 Dogs 19 Years Later – American Kennel Club

We all changed that day. Even the role of dogs in our lives would never be the same. This feature from AKC Family Dog gives a glimpse of the the dog world, post 9/11.

You may remember Pomeranian Momma Mia and Maggie from our feature story on this team in the March/April issue of AKC Family Dog. Maggie has had a difficult summer, with a new chemotherapy protocol and major surgery. But that didn't stop her and Momma Mia from entering the AKC Virtual Top Dog Challenge, and doing very, very well. Watch her video and give her a cheer!

Some activities are starting up again, but they may be very different than they were before. Masks, temperature checks, social distancing, endless hand washing are just some of the precautions.

In the latest issue of AKC Family Dog, read how one beloved business—Canine Camp Getaway of New York—is making plans to welcome campers while keeping them safe from the virus.

Are any of your favorite dog-related businesses opening again? What changes have they made?

One Tricky Terrier

You may recognize this sweet, talented West Highland White Terrier from our July/August issue (see page in comments). There, she was showing off her smooth rally moves, which earned her a novice title through AKC's new virtual programs. Now, Fiona has added another achievement—AKC Trick Dog Elite Performer. She is one of only four Westies to have earned this title!

Give a big cheer for this beautiful gal and her human pal, Lori Hahn.

And if you've had any recent triumphs, share them in the comments.

To the Editors: I wrote a comment on the visitor page with recent photo. In your most recent youth issue I was told you found a photo of me showing the Jones Boys Great Pyrenees from 55 years ago! (Ugh. Really?). I thought you’d like an update.
As a follow up, my mother’s handler for her top winning Welsh Corgi was Mike Shea, an AKC rep.
