Corporal Liam Tasker and his search dog Theo were inseparable. The pair had routed out an Army record of 14 caches of bombs and weapons saving countless numbers of lives. Earlier this month, Liam was tragically shot dead in an accident with Theo by his side. Hours after the incident, Theo had a heat attack and died.
