Pennsylvania legislation has name March 13th as Canine Veterans Day. This was an opportunity to honor four-legged heroes who have served in war time, during disaster response or in service to man in need. Dr. Otto attended a ceremony to honor these heroes on Saturday the 10th. Additional celebrations were held around the state.
