The love between a family and their pet is a powerful thing. Since I am in the medical field, an unspoken, professional agreement has required me to give it a long, fancy name. It is called the Human Animal Bond and while we can professionally define and describe it, we cannot actually say why it occurs. As individuals who are deeply rooted in not putting down roots, military members and their Families often form some of the strongest bonds. These pets provide a sense of consistency and enthusiastically face the adventure of military life by our sides.
