Hero

Here are some beautiful pictures of some very precious heroes courtesy of our darlin’ Ami over at Ami's Starsong.  Tissue alert…





heroes p1
So nice to see those brave dogs being looked after!
 
heroes p2

This is my human there are many like it but this one is mine...

And the guy on the left has a BIG smile on his face.  It's his dog and he is glad it found another lap to sit on instead of his. (Note the brown leash)









 
 
heroes p3
Oh Come On We Both Fit On This Thing! See!?
  
heroes p4
 



I totally saw the dog and is wonderful wing man, never really paid attention to anything else until I started reading the comments.  Thank you to our military and their very special dogs who are sent into the worse case scenarios






heroes p5
My son was half of a K9 couple.  His first partner was Banjo, explosives detection.  Oh, the stories we've heard!  His second partner was Brit, drug dog.  I have nothing but the utmost respect for all K9 teams.
heroes p6



He/she deserved it! Thank you for your service, sweet little puppy.











heroes p7Look at the power in the thighs and shoulders of this soldier.  And that beautiful, determined face.  I grew up being told by my Air Force father that women could never serve in combat.  Oh, yeah?  Tell that to this American soldier!  To paraphrase Lincoln: "SHE who shall have borne the battle..."

heroes p8




He looks so fierce, but sad…
Tears rolling down his/hers face.















heroes p9
They trust each other!


heroes p10



The dog survived, the handler sadly did not.

















heroes p11He is receiving a medal for his service to our Country...
well deserved.


heroes p12



Let's go for a walk they said.
It'll be fun they said.
 







heroes p13Best friend I could of ever asked for!!!
  
heroes p14




IF ONLY we humans would love
one another this way too.













heroes p15Every K9 soldier would give their life for their partner,
no question they r angels of war...
bond beyond words.

heroes p16



Hey, that's an Israeli soldier!
 
 










 
 
heroes p17
The love of a dog is the closest thing to the love God
has for the human race. 
Greater love hath no man than to lay down his life for
his friends ...

heroes p18



Thank you for your service. 
Now run free over the rainbow bridge.








heroes p19Not a K9 Soldier, but nonetheless a dog who will serve.
His contribution to morale and mental health of the soldiers who found him, take care of him, and will hopefully bring him home with them should also be recognized.
Not a War Dog, but still a Dog of War.

heroes p20




THAT is an awesome picture!!!
 
 
 
 
 
  





heroes p21The sharp dried weeds/grass was probably hurting the dog's feet. Saw another picture once where the human soldier was carrying his dog over burning hot sand. If it's too hot or cold on the ground for you to go barefooted, it's too hot or cold for animals too.
He ain't heavy he's my brother!

heroes p22




This is the family of fallen Marine Cpl Dustin Lee. They were allowed to adopt "Lex".
















 
heroes p23"That's not a dog, THAT'S A MARINE." -
Gny Sgt. Leroy Jethro Gibb, USMC "NCIS"


heroes p24





He looks like he's saying its
okay we got this covered.
 
 
 
 
 
 










heroes p25
Look after them like they
looked after you.

  4. Loved this post, Cat! One of our boys got Sam a book like this for Christmas. It is titled Buddies: Men, Dogs, and World War II. The pictures tell the story. Hardly any need for words.

    Hugs From Ella
