Bringing a Dog To Heal
Medric Cousineau is a retired airforce navigator who started having symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after a perilous rescue effort at sea.
For more than two and a half decades, Medric struggled to get his life under control, trying treament after treatment, in search of a therapy that would ease the endless anguish.
Nothing worked...until he was paired with a service dog named Thai about 18 months ago.
The change was SO dramatic, Medric resolved to find a way to provide service dogs to other vets living with PTSD.
This past summer he took a long walk to Ottawa to raise awareness and money for the cause.
The walk is now done, but the work is not. Carmen Klassen has our story.
