THE IMPACT

THE FILM

"Angel in a Foxhole," a short film

The film's goal is to communicate:  


+ the therapeutic and healing value of therapy and service dogs to humans in need;


+ the loving and caring bonds between people, animals and people;


+ Smoky's contributions during WWII that saved lives and serviced others.

A few words

The word is out about Smoky

Barbara Jedda, Director

AKC Museum of the Dog

'"The smallest four-footed soldier to serve in war, WWII canine mascot Smoky proved to be a courageous companion to her handler William Wynne -- who writes of their unique experiences with enthusiasm and love."
