    Yup, she lost 20% of sight and still was the best. This was to be her last tour before retiring.

    Bomb sniffing dogs are seen frequently throughout the day at the rink. This dog officer made the rounds during Team USA's morning skate.

    Hope it's not a repost, I don't think I have seen this here

    Bodie, a Sacramento police dog, recovers at the Sacramento Veterinary Referral Center in Rancho Cordova after being shot once in the leg and twice in the jaw on May 18, 2012, during the pursuit of a suspected car thief in the Land Park neighborhood. Bodie is on the mend and may return to duty in early 2013. The Sacramento Bee / Autumn Cruz

    found also the current update on Bodie's conditions from Sacramento Police :

    Bodie Update!! Photo of Bodie taking on the x-ray table. Bodie went to VCA to see Dr Runyan today and for the first time in over 7 months he walked out of the building with no cast or wrap on his leg!!! The x-rays show his toes are strong enough to start rehab and continue to heal without any support from a splint! We did some physical therapy on an underwater treadmill for a little bit and then used a theraputic laser on his paw in several places. The laser is a low level class 3B "cold laser" and assists with healing and pain control. We plan on about a month or so of physical rehab and then back into police training for another couple months to get him back into a crime fighting level! Everything will be done at Bodie's speed and he won't be rushed. Bodie has had his wrap off his leg for the past several hours and is doing great!!!

    A very sad day today An austrian suspect did not stop at a police traffic check and tried to run away. After a long chase he crashed his car into another police car and killed the two dogs on board. Two cops were also wounded. RIP

    These weren't official military dogs, but a few we adopted during our deployment to Afghanistan and they were amazing. The Afghans treat dogs like rodents and they are pretty much wild throughout. They don't like the Afghans and the ones we took on patrol with us were actually very helpful when going through villages and compounds.

    Wishbone was the first dog we adopted and she was one of the best dogs I've ever met, over there or back in the states. She remained over there with the unit who took over when we left.



    This little guy was named ManBearPig and we took him in our first month in country. Over the next 13 months he grew to be quite an awesome dog and one of my platoon's squad leaders actually was able to adopt him and take him back when we left. I don't believe he called him ManBearPig though haha.



    This is the dog the ODA team we lived with adopted as their own, named Paulie. This is her on patrol with us and she would go with them and us and was great at clearing buildings and compounds with us.
