Getting a job these days is tough enough. Getting a job for you and your service animal? It's as hard as it sounds. But Clay Luthy did it.



Luthy, a disabled Air Force vet, had been struggling to find work since he needed his service animal, a dog named Charlotte, to be with him. But he got hired for a part-time job at a Lowe's in Abilene, Texas. Hiring Luthy meant Lowe's was also hiring Charlotte.
"We were interviewing people for his position. And he was one of the applicants. And so he showed up for the interview and he had Charlotte with him," Jay Fellers, a human resource manager at Lowes, told CNN affiliate KRBC.
Luthy and his furry friend have been together for 10 years and working at the store for two months. Charlotte alerts Luthy and helps him calm down.
"Instead of medications, I have Charlotte," he said.
Lowe's often schedules Luthy to work in departments like paint, where Charlotte has a place to sit.
Fellers said Charlotte -- who wears her own Lowe's vest while on duty -- has been a hit with customers.
Supporting one of the nation's hero in such a way has been popular with them too.

Hi
Good day

By now most of you all know that I am
NOT an American & not a Christian
(sorry Boss for mentioning religion here)

Just want to say, I have total respect for Vet especially those who came back from tour of duty & handicap & much more so for those in a body' bag.
God bless their souls.

They are the ones that put their lives for you & your country, remember that irrespective of whoever or how many they have eliminated in their course of their duties.
They were merely following the orders.
A good soldier always follow order with question, period!!

As a saying goes:
in order to be kind, you have to be cruel
in order to save, you have to eliminate.

Wish all Vet a
Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.

Thank you & have a nice day.
