Soldier Dogs

Today's post is not about me folks.  Instead, today I have a pictorial post of soldier dogs.  These are the dogs who are such an integral part of our mission in Afghanistan.  The photos speak for themselves.

Now don't you feel better after viewing these heart-warming photos of our canine heroes?

Have a great day!

Can soldiers bring dogs with them?

No, they cannot brings dogs with them. However, some have brought dogs home with them from Iraq and Afghanistan.

You should have put up the photo I sent you of the dog my daughter rescued in Iraq. It was in the bombed out building where she was stationed and it had a broken leg, which her and her fellow soldiers fixed.

Thank you Ron for posting these pics. I know these canine companions keep our shoulders sane in these war torn places away from home. The first dog is exactly like my adopted Timmy, who is 4 years old & the best watch dog ever. I hope you & Bill are both doing well & enjoying the warm weather.

Great photos! Dogs have indeed played an intregal part in soldier's lives throughout military history. They certainly serve to bouy spirits in often dire and depressing situations.

Okay - I'm going to be crude and say it:
Those cute soldiers would be enough to lift my spirits!

Send me the picture of the dog Noelle rescued in Iraq. I don't remember getting it or else I have forgotten it.

Good to hear from you again! I love the fact that our soldiers are using dogs to help them. There is no better friend than Man's Best Friend. Looking at these pictures really makes me feel good.

You noticed! Yep, there are some cute soldiers. Too cute maybe. :)

Ever since we rescued a mutt from the pound, I can't look at dog photos, happy or sad one, without choking up. I am going to turn into one of those nuts who leaves all hismoney to humane society.

Dr. Spo,

I'm one of those nuts who is going to leave all his money to an animal shelter too.
