During a recent snow storm, she was called for duty in Madison County, Indiana. While she rode around in a humvee rescuing snowed in people and assisting the sheriff and fire department. I was took care of her dog, Battle.
Getting to this National Guard pet sitting client was an adventure, to say the least. Trust me, plenty of curse words flew through the air because I kept getting stuck. All I can say is, “Thank goodness for 4-wheel drive!”
Traipsing through waist high snow drifts and parking blocks away is par for the course during snow storms like that. Luckily, I made it to her house 3 times per day but had emergency plans in my mind on what I’d do if the heat went out or the weather got worse.
However, the power stayed on and Battle stayed nice and toasty inside while his momma was out helping Indiana folks and other National Guard members.
Once Battle’s mom was finished with her military duties, she happily returned home to a dog that missed her to pieces and gave her lots of love.
