Dogs Are Certainly A Man's Best Friend

This Saturday is the 11th November, Remembrance Day. At 11am we remember our fallen men and women who gave their lives for our country.

But what about those servicemen and women, who return from battle and face serious physical and psychological challenges to fit back in society?

An average day for Emma, Brock and their daughter is like that of any other young family.

There's day care pickups and drop offs and quality time for the three of them, however there are still appointments to go to.

Brock has certainly come along way and now feels that he is at a stage in his journey where he wants to be a stay-at-home dad.

This is a HUGE step in the journey for them.

"It is a huge thing for us," Emma told Bianca. "We can get ahead as a family financially and that security is a really big thing as well which is exciting for us because no we can actually start looking to that."

"We've made ways to make it easier for everyone. We've got him a companion dog, he's beautiful. It's funny they say 'dogs look like their owners',"

"Is he a red head?" Bianca asked, referring to Brock's red hair.

"His name is Harry and he's a border collie. We bought him as a brown border collie and as he's got bigger, it's got red hair! It's hilarious!"

Brock relies on his dog Harry during the day and during the night, they have Nugget who protects them.

They do say, a dog is a man's best friend!
