Those Cheeky British Military Working Dogs

There was a major issue with my Monday post and I’m still trying to figure out the cause. That was the first time I’ve had any problems. It resulted in many people receiving the post multiple times and some never actually receiving the post. Please accept my apology.

If you didn’t receive Monday’s email you should know that the tear jerking final chapter of Marc and Anax was published on Monday. Here is the link.

If you read it already then you know that these stories aren’t scripted….they end how they end….no matter how tragic or triumphant……. these stories I share with you are unedited tales of our dog teams.

Last week’s fun and carefree dog photo post was taken over by my passionate “rant”, Are Military Dogs Equipment, after I spied a photo of that crazy Taliban looking dude in a photo. Of course it was the caption that set me off.

Fortunately I’m not all fired up this week so I’ve decided to post some fabulous pictures of British Military Working Dogs in Afghanistan.

You may remember the post back in December, The British Army in Afghanistan Goes to the Dogs, where I hooked up with some British Army combat camera crew members who gracefully gave me permission to use their photos.

Once again I am using the photographer’s remarks about the photos for the captions.

That combat team is getting ready to depart Afghanistan and back home so I thought it was fitting to share Mike Hubbard and Jamie Peters photos one last time.

Thanks for sharing your photos with us guys and safe travels back to your families in the UK.

    This is a happier post. They’re so cute! But last week’s was important too.

    I’m sorry you had problems last week. But they happen. As a software engineer, I can promise you that problem-free software is…abberant. The fact that you made it over a year without issues? That’s just God intervening on your behalf.

    Of course they’re cheeky – being cheeky is in the British soldiers’ DNA, so it i in that of their dogs, stands to reason, no?

    Thanks for the photos!
