Military Dogs To The Rescue!

Filed under: PolitikInspirationDog

Military dogs are not only a man's best friend, they are also a country's best friend.

These canine companions are specially trained to sniff out bombs and IED devices and many have lost their lives protecting their handlers.

Some of these dogs include Lex, a Belgian Malinois who would wait for his handler to sleep before crawling out of their foxhole to stand guard in the rain, and Robby, a retired war dog who served THREE tours of duty!

These doggies are simply uhMAZing!

Master Chief and NCO of dog operations in Afghanistan said the following about military dogs:

The bond will pull you through the toughest situations.I don't think there's anything else in the world that can compare to the bond between a handler and dog.

We'd like to thank all of the dogs who served this country faithfully!

14 Bomb-Sniffing Dogs Died On Way To Afghanistan

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadDog

And they weren't killed in an attack.

A $1,000,000 lawsuit was filed over the death of 14 bomb-sniffing dogs who were on their way to Afghanistan.

The dogs died while housed in a truck at Animal Port Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport facility.

This is so sad.

A veterinarian had certified before the dogs left that Tiny, Rex, Rocky, Crock, Dork, Harrie, Stress, Sigo, Rex, Jaco, Kimbo, Kilo, Albert and Bak were all in good health.

The poor doggies weren't able to board a same day flight so they were going to be boarded overnight in the company's kennel.

But when the agents for the dog's owners visited the facility early the next morning they found the animals inside an unattended refrigerated box truck.

When the agents shook the animals' cages, they didn't move.

They found blood on the floor and evidence that at least two of the dogs had tried to escape.

Every single dog was dead.

Absolutely terrible.

We think $1,000,000 will never replace those dogs or undo the torturous deaths they went through, but it seems a good penalty to ensure something like this never happens again.
