The World’s Cutest Best Man!

Love is …having someone to hold.

There’s a moment
just before the leap
a wavering lapse
This is when
I think of you
and all your names
if and but
you and us
Sometimes the void answers;
at others,
I jump.

Maybe you don’t need the whole world to love you, you know ♥ Maybe you just need one person (or a dog)

In 2012, the U.S. Army veteran Justin Lansford lost his left leg in an explosion in Afghanistan.  Upon returning home to recover, Lansford was paired with Gabe, a then two-year-old Golden Retriever who had recently graduated from the Warrior Canine Connection.

The WCC is a nonprofit that pairs wounded warriors with support dogs, who help their brave best friends improve their symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Gabe recently shouldered a brave new responsibility, serving as the best man in Lansford’s wedding to longtime girlfriend, Carol Balmes. Gabe certainly is the World’s Cutest Best Man!

Dogs do know what love is!
