Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!

I just learned about America's first (recognized) war dog. WW1. Sgt Stubby.

Aint he cute? He was a stray who showed up at training camp, befriended a soldier, was smuggled onto the ship sailing to France and then stayed with that soldier during all the fighting. He apparently made himself extremely useful - warning of bombs & mustard gas, locating wounded soldiers in NoMansLand and biting German spies. Among other tricks like learning to salute.

He has a couple statues too



There! You learned something!

All my dog can do is float to the ceiling...


Happy Memorial Day!
