Service dogs are often unsung animal heroes in our society.
They do admirable jobs that many of us would fail at in a miserable way, and they do them willingly with endless devotion and heart.
From leading the blind and caring for the elderly up to running into bomb filled combat zones – they do it all so that we don’t have to.
And for that they deserve our endless thanks.
Maddox is just such a service dog, and his owners decided that he should enjoy a very special birthday gift to thank him for his loyal service.
A gift that left him howling at the moon (or more fire trucks).
