    “Emra and I had such a strong bond in South Korea, but I will admit, my biggest fear was that she would not recognize me,” the soon to retire, 13-year Air Force veteran, who has also served in Iran and Afghanistan, told Breitbart News. “It had been nearly three years since we were together at Osan Air Base.” “As Emra approached me for the first time since Osan, she was so distracted by the cameras and all the equipment, that she hesitated for a moment to smell the lenses and microphones. For that split second, my heart dropped into my...

The truck hauling the "produce" crossed the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge along the Texas-Mexico border near the Gulf of Mexico. Over 34,000 of the fake fruit packages were discovered by an imaging inspection system and narcotics K-9 team.

    St. Francis once said: “If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.” This is the case every time. When someone is cruel to animals, they are cruel to human beings. In fact, Christianity is the best for the care of animals. Dozens of American-trained dogs were killed by a Kuwaiti-based company last week, according to multiple reports, though there are conflicting explanations for the deaths. While several news agencies reported the story, they fail to also report that...

    Dogs and humans have a long history of friendship, and hunting has been one of the main reasons people have bred dogs over the centuries. There are ancient cave paintings depicting stories of dogs walking alongside man. The story goes back 20,000 years to the time of pre-agricultural hunter-gatherers. As far back as 12,000 years ago, there's evidence of dogs used for hunting, guarding and hauling weight. In most every culture, dogs have played a longstanding and important role. The ancient Chinese kept dogs as companions and for hunting. In Egypt, dogs held great cultural significance and were often mummified...

    Being a K9 handler in the Military I got to do a few details involving Distinguished Visitors. Mostly Generals, DOD Officials, and Secretaries of Defense. I was lucky enough to pull two awesome details. George W Bush, and Obama. GW looked at me, said “Man, who’d you piss off” high fived me, and continued on. I was climbing down from a catwalk I stood on for 4 hours with nothing but Dust and a radio to keep me company. The radio died early on. It was pretty sweet. Obama, as he was walking out to his plane in Turkey, said...

    A former military K9 handler, tasked with protecting Hillary Clinton overseas while she was U.S. secretary of state, is now caught up in the dog-eat-dog world of politics after posting his opinion of the Democratic Party nominee for president on Facebook. “It has nothing to do with her views,” Eric Bonner wrote. “It really doesn’t even matter about all the laws she broke. “It’s because she actually talked to me once.

In a prop package with a fake address label attached, Roekle placed a special gift from her son, Braven, and dog, Midnight. It's sat on her stoop Tuesday, waiting for...
