Mans Best Friend 2
A Wonderful Story About Mans Best friend
Your dog will never lie to you, cheat on you and will always be happy to see you. Don't betray the best friend you will ever have
Et Tu Brute!!!
K-9 Congressional Medal of Honor Winner.
This story has permeated all round the internet and whilst we think it may be rather exaggerated, let us not forget that there are many service dogs deployed to the middle east to help western troops. Not all will make it back, mainly because of the cost and quarantine problems. Service dogs both here and abroad don't always have the wonderful life that the forces try to make us believe. If they survive target practice for the Taliban, their reward for service life is often to be put down at an early age. Some reward for serving their country and protecting their handler. Service dogs are treated as commodities not living breathing sentient beings
The K9 above is Brutus, a military K9 at McChord. He's huge - part Boxer and part British Bull Mastiff and tops the scales at 200 lbs. His handler took the picture. Brutus is running toward me because he knows I have some Milk Bone treats, so he's slobbering away! I had to duck around a tree just before he got to me in case he couldn't stop, but he did. Brutus won the Congressional Medal of Honor last year from his tour in Iraq. His handler and four other soldiers were taken hostage by insurgents. Brutus and his handler communicate by sign language and he gave Brutus the signal that meant 'go away but come back and find me'. The Iraqis paid no attention to Brutus. He came back later and quietly tore the throat out of one guard at one door and another guard at another door. He then jumped against one of the doors repeatedly (the guys were being held in an old warehouse) until it opened. He went in and untied his handler and they all escaped. He's the first K9 to receive this honour. If he knows you're ok, he's a big old lug and wants to sit in your lap. Enjoys the company of cats.
Talk about animal intelligence and bonding with humans!
So remember this when you contemplate rehoming your dog. Remember that they can't do a lot of things for themselves and that they depend on you to make their life a quality life!
A PET'S TEN COMMANDMENTS.........
- My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
- Give me time to understand what you want of me
- Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
- Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
- Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me
- Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it
- Before you hit me before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
- Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
- Please take care of me when I grow old. You too will grow old.
- On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me, please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there because I love you so.
So take a moment today to thank God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them.
Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's critters.
We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!
Your dog will never lie to you, cheat on you and will always be happy to see you. Don't betray the best friend you will ever have.
