While Mama searched for a suitable link to veteran dogs, she found THIS. It ties in nicely with Miss Sue‘s post on fostering dogs on Dogs ‘n More. (And don’t miss Sue’s pack’s red bandana event. Mama got some cute shots of us!)
The article says dogs have been serving the military since World War I, but we’re betting that’s just when they were formally inducted into the service. We’re sure that since the time of man, his best friend has gone to battle with him. So, we honor our fallen veterans today too, human, canine or … whatever other species there might be.
Don’t mind our somber expressions. Not only is honoring the high price of freedom serious work, but Mama also waited until the deck wasn’t in direct sunlight, and we’d been chasing lizards and nursing Dadaw all day, so we were tired!
