Thread subject: Honoring War Dogs

cheryl 02/12/10 05:17 pm Many of us share interests in animals other than birds and osprey. For those of you who love dogs and/or appreciate working dogs, I came across this moving article which talks about the dogs that were trained to serve soldiers in combat situation and the people who are having a reunion to honor their 4 legged partners.
WAR DOGS
I was so glad to read that these dogs are now made adoptable after their working days are finished. They deserve a good, loving, and comfortable retirement for the service that give.
Celeste 02/12/10 05:32 pm Those are very touching photos, and I agree very moving. It is a reminder of how many roles dogs play in helping man, whether it is during wars, search and rescues, etc.. They give so much and ask for so little don't they?

With the Westminster Dog Show upon us, there was an article in our local newspaper today called "Dogs are a Wonder". The writer, Mark Morrone calls dogs the Eighth Wonder of the World. He mentions that without the "early" dogs to help prehistoric men to hunt and provide for their families, early humans would not have had the time needed to think about how to further alter their environment and culture. The people who painted the cave walls were only able to do so on the full stomach provided by the help of their dogs. He also states that "no domesticated animal has played anything like the role of the dog has assumed" and that man is indebted to these wonderful animals.

Nancy L 02/13/10 03:16 pm Thanks for that article, Cheryl. Very enlightening.
Madeline 02/13/10 04:02 pm I'm sure I've seen that documentary on the War Dogs those many years ago. I can't imagine how it must of felt having to leave your best buddy, friend and savior over there and left to a terrible fate. It's nice to hear they are being memorialized, they deserve it.

Thanks for the article Cheryl :-)
