For the past 6 years, a German shepherd called Capitán has slept next to the grave of his owner every night at 6pm. His owner, Miguel Guzmán died in 2006. Capitán, the dog, disappeared while the family attended the fueral services. A week later reatives of Guzmán were visiting the cemetery when they were astounded to find the dog next to the owner's grave. The cemetery director says that the dog comes around each night at 6pm, and has done so for the past 6 years!
Exactly! That's not equipment on his shoulder. So glad soldier dogs (and sailor, airman, marine, and coastie dogs!) are beginning to get the kind of recognition they deserve. Photo: Military Photography

I AM A MILITARY WORKING DOG. My eyes are your eyes to watch you and protect you and yours, My ears are your ears to hear and detect evil minds in the dark, My nose is your nose to scent the invader of your domain, And so you may live, my LIFE is also yours.
Oh my heart........4 year-old Paige Bennethum really, really didn’t want her daddy to go to Iraq. So much that when Army Reservist Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum lined up in formation at his deployment this July, she couldn’t let go. No one had the heart to pull her away.
