Since World War I, canines have played a large part in history. Known as "war dogs," these courageous canines, accompanied by their handlers, have bravely assisted our soldiers in so many ways; from tracking to bomb sniffing. For more interesting facts, videos, documentaries, stamp project information, and much more on the war dogs, visit the United States War Dog Association's website at www.uswardogs.org. Canines also played a large part in the 9/11 rescue operation. A wonderful tribute book, accompanied by some awesome photographs, of America's search and rescue dogs is Dog Heroes of September 11th.
To our veterans and veteran war dogs, we say "Thank you!" for all you've done.
Pictured above ready to celebrate Memorial Day is "Wolf," our two-year-old white Siberian Husky pack member. From "Wolf" and all of us here at FiveSibes, both Husky and Hu-family members, we wish everyone an enjoyable and safe Memorial Day.
For our Hu-Soldiers: “Saving their land that fettered lay and sad, Themselves in dust of darkness these men clad: Seeing the praise they won for valor high, For his dear land a man may dare to die." ~Unknown.
For our War Dogs: "To all war dogs and their handlers past, present, and future; your deeds and sacrifices will always be remembered. Fidele nos praeeo." ~U.S. War Dogs Association
