A admirable way to help deployed military and their dogs...Not working *military* canines...but a wonderful gesture for our military on active duty. We may have had a thread on this some time ago.


Visiting with his son's dog Laykhen, Butch Krohn, of Port Royal, stops in as often as he can to the Paw Prints Sanctuary to visit his son's two dogs that are staying there. Krohn's son, 1st Lt. Robert Krohn, is with the 56th Stryker Brigade.

A Belarussian military dog rides a platform being held by a group of soldiers carrying it above their heads in Minsk on May 19, 2009 during the country's annual military expo and arms fair.

The Belorussians are some of the premier dog training countries of the world. They have a specialized Cynology course which provides military and law enforcement dogs for most of the third world. Even the North Koreans get their training there.

I'd probably be terrier-fied. The dogs might say that the training is ruff, but the jumps are something to howl about.

I am reading “No Easy Day” the firsthand account of the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden, and he has quite a few goo things to say about the “Assault” dogs they use. They really consider them part of the Team.

My monitor kept getting blurry on some of these pictures. :)

The 12th one down of the GSDs rappelling, I guess, gave me a chuckle.

One dog looked like he was trying to swim his way out of the situation.

The other one had a straight-legged stance that shouted “Jane, stop this crazy thing!” (Jetsons reference.)

How is the book?

I am a little over half way through and so far it is very good.

He opens by describing the infiltration to Bin Laden's compound, then goes into some of his personal history and motivation for joining the military and SEAL's.

He relays some interesting stories of various deployments including the Maresk Alabama incident.

The only criticism I have is that he will be in a flashback and from there go to an earlier flashback, but this is a minor annoyance.

The narrative flows well and he gives great descriptions of the people and events. He also does a pretty good job of describing his weapons of choice and why he chose each one for a special purpose.

He also makes a point of describing the delays from Washington in getting the okay for various missions and he is critical of the increased restrictions imposed by the continually updated "rules of engagement". He is not scathing about it, but he makes it clear that the teams were ready and willing, but were held back and frequently this resulted in difficulty with operations.

For anyone interested, there are nonprofits that adopt out retired military and drug-sniffing dogs .... I’m sure the patriots here on this website would be interested in supporting organizations like that.

I blame the OP. If the OP hadn’t posted, that speck wouldn’t have flown into your eye. ;)

The Marine War Dog Memorial brought a tear to my eye, but the repelling one made me feel a whole lot better. I can just hear the four legged soldier on the left screaming “HOLY CRAP, ARE YOU PEOPLE CRAZY”, and the one on the right yelling at him, “REMEMBER YOUR TRAINING; KEEP YOUR KNEES BENT, AND YOU WILL COME OUT OF THIS ALIVE”.
