For many, the best kind of therapy is not seeing a shrink or therapist, it's a companion, the furry kind, the kind that barks and wags its tail.
John and Kait Seyal are walking across the US with their two dogs, Max and Grace, to promote pet therapy and animal rescue.
Monday they visited the Grand Junction V.A., hoping to bring smiles to the faces of those who have served our country.
They say it's the least they could do to show their appreciation for all these veterans have done, and say experiencing their kindness and that of those they've met has made this a one-of-a-kind journey.
"That's something that we felt like we needed to experience ourselves," John explained, "I mean this trip has really restored our faith in humanity and in people. I mean, people are just wonderful. Their generosity and willingness to help their...fellow man.... it's just humbling."
So far, John and his wife, and the dogs of course, have walked over 2,200 miles.
They began their trip on the Delaware coast and will finish in San Francisco, most likely in early December.
