Who better to serve in the War on Terrorism than us canines? This interesting article talks about the recruitment of flunky dogs and their journey to becoming dog heroes.
There are struggles in training canines to become great additions to society as noted here.
Many of the Labradors have been dismissed from guide-dog schools. “We have dogs that are bouncing off the wall, wild-horse dogs. If you have a handicapped person with him, it’s going [to] look like a chariot race,” Bohan says.

Pucci [a prisoner] threw a party for “my baby girl” [Mary Jane] who was leaving to fight al-Qaida. “I may be a criminal, but I’m an American criminal,” he said. His voice caught. “A little piece of me goes out to fight for the American way – to keep the Yankee games going.”
When he was young, had Pucci made the right choice to become a Mets fan, he may have been president today.
Ricky Bobby and Mary Jane … thank you for your service.
