View from the Moo: Veteran's Day: War Dogs

Good Moo-rning everyone,
Its time for another View from the Moo... 
that's me!     

We honor all our Veterans and Militrary on Veteran's Day 2012, including the brave and selfless dogs who have assisted our troops
in every war, to the present day.
Thank woo for your service!

While mom was looking up some war dog info, she came across the site of an author who wrote about the dogs who served in VietNam.  Mom says she learned some things of particular interest to our breed:
Did woo know that Siberians & Malamutes were the first dogs used by the Military?   It's true!






The book cover features Buck (not a war dog) who became an ambassador for the War Dogs of Viet Nam.  With his owner, Johnny Mayo, (a Scout and dog handler during the war)  he toured schools, attended events, and eventually achieved National recognition for our brave 4-legged heroes of that war.

The book retells true stories of some of the 4,000 dogs who fought alongside our troops during the War in Viet Nam.

Sounds like a good book to read to your dog, doesn't it?
Maybe along with a night-time snackie,... yeah, that sound real good!


....and that's today's View from the Moo!
Toodle-woo,
Miss Moo

We join you in saluting all veterans - K9 and human. We, too, wrote about Buck and have that beautiful book! It's a great book.
