Local therapy dogs have been welcoming home our troop members from Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere for almost four years. These welcome home celebrations are organized by the Diablo Valley Flag Brigade (DVFB) and the Pleasanton Military Families (PMF). All participating therapy dogs are members of the DVFB Petting Officer Pack. They have attended numerous celebrations throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties, from Oakland to Oakley, from Martinez to Pleasanton.
