The Dog Files Join The Army!

This past week was definitely a week that will go down in Dog Files history!

We spent some time with the soldiers of the 241st MP Det (K-9 Section) and while our admiration for the US Military has always been strong, our understanding and appreciation has only grown deeper. These soldiers put everything on the line for their country and I’d just like to say thanks for all that they do.

One of the nicest parts of the week was seeing how much they love their  Military Working Dog (MWD) Partners. These guys are just as big dog lovers as all of us and it showed in everything they did. All of them have more dogs at home and most would do anything to keep their MWD’s when their dog retires.

And just a quick note. The Dog Files is in the process of setting up a program where we can send notes and care packages to a soldier and his canine partner while they are on deployment in Iraq or Afghanistan. In return, they will keep Dog Files fans updated with photos and notes about how they are doing. We will announce it shortly.

Check out some pics of the week below (click the pics to see the whole image) and stay tuned to The Dog Files to see our Military Working Dog Special this fall! Hoo-Ahh!!!

Special Thanks to First Lieutenant Tyler Ginter for making this possible!

Would love to send care packages to soldiers and canine partners. I teach high school students who need community service projects for a college applications! Please keep us posted!

It would be good to have assurances from the US Army that they won't do another Doggy Vietnam – they left army dogs there after the war rather than bring them home. Dogs that had fought as valiantly as the rest of the army.

I work on the Base where these photos were taken. All dogs are given rank and are sworn into the Armed Forces. These dogs also earn Medals and Ribbons just like any Soldier and if im not mistaken they can recieve military burial at the time of death if the owner chooses so. When the dog retires the soldier or soldiers that cared for him or her are the first to be afforded the opportunity to adopt. Great dogs and great people that take care of them. Thanks to all for the Service to our great Country.
