More powerful than a locomotive?
Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound?
“Look! Dashing across the battlefield!”
“It’s a dog!”
“It’s a dog?”
“It’s a Super Dog!”
Yes, it’s a Superdog! The military does in fact have Superdogs!
In a prior post I mentioned that Cairo, the Osama Bin Laden Hunter, is a Multi Purpose Canine, or an MPC. (We love our acronyms in the military!)
Currently Multi Purpose Canines are unique to our Special Operation Forces. So what makes these canines different from mainstream military working dogs?
Well, that is like asking what makes the Special Operations community (unconventional) different from the mainstream military (conventional)!
Most traditional dogs in the military–and law enforcement for that matter–are dual purpose: patrol-trained and either drug- or explosive-trained. This means they are trained to attack and can find one of two substances, drugs or explosives. These canines are specialists in these disciplines.
What can a Multi Purpose Canine do?
I’ve been asked: Do “Superdogs” have a kryptonite? My answer: I’m pretty sure they have a weakness for milk bones!
So how many of these Super Dogs do we have in the military inventory, you ask?
Yeah, I’m not touching that one. Sorry!
So why doesn’t the military make all our dogs “Super Dogs”?
I can tackle that one, but not until next time. I’ve gotta go feed my “Super” Dogs!
Please share and tell us why.
How about those non “Super Dog” candidates…… why is your dog out of the running to become a “Super Dog”?
