I Thought you might like

ending

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 honor. If
he knows you're ok,

he's a big old lug and
wants to sit in your

lap.Enjoys the company
of cats..

K-9 Congressional
Medal of Honor Winner
 
Thought
you'd find this interesting.
 
Talk about
animal intelligence and bonding

with
humans!


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!


Instructions for
properly hugging

a baby:  1. First, uh, find a
baby.

2. Second, be sure
that the object you found was indeed a
baby by employing
classic sniffing techniques.

3. Next you will
need to flatten the baby before actually

beginning the
 hugging
process.

4. The 'paw slide'
Simply slide paws around baby

and prepare for
possible close-up.

5. Finally, if a
camera is present, you will need to execute
 the
difficult
and patented 'hug, smile, and lean' so as to
 achieve
the best
photo quality.

If you don't pass this
along, a dog 
will pee on your
computer!
