Today we bring you another story that, thanks to the animals, got the best possible epilogue.
When veteran Stephen Simmons returned home from Iraq, it was hard for him to transition from a lot of adrenaline to the quiet, civilian life. Then a friend recommended him the adventure therapy. He started to run and hike in Oregon’s high mountains, of course, together with his pets.
His dog and cat helped him to deal with severe post-traumatic stress disorder. His pets were always with him – at home, during a walk, excited to go on hiking trips. His cat Burma and dog Puppi only wanted to please their owner – make him feel better, and teach him to enjoy his life again.
