Remembering the War Dogs

Remembrance day is tomorrow.

Last year I told you about Gander, a war dog from Newfoundland, Canada

This year I was looking for another Canadian dog, or any dog to tell you about. Sadly, Google was not being very cooperative. What I did find to share with you this year is a photo essay on war dogs in general.

Click on the stunning picture below to take you to this essay and learn more about the dogs who give their lives to keep up safe and free.

Emerald Warrior is an annual two-week joint/combined tactical exercise sponsored by U.S. Special Operations Command designed to leverage lessons learned from operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom to provide trained and ready forces to combatant commanders.

About Sabrina's Pug Tails

My name is Sabrina. I am a three year old fawn pug who lives with my three humans and my brother-cat Shinobi. I came to live with my family in February of 2010. I don’t remember much about my life before that. I know that I didn’t have a nice warm bed to sleep in or soft couches to lay on. I was rescued from my previous life by the Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba along with my brother, sister and mom. My human mum tells me that some dogs work at being smart and some work at being cute, and I am very, very cute. I think there may be some kind of insult here………
