♥In honor of those who gave everything to give us everything♥








When we left Vietnam we left our war dogs behind to suffer at the hands of the Viet Kong. They were shot and starved and skinned alive and used for target practice and boiled and eaten. NEVER AGAIN! Legislation has been passed that designates our war dogs as military members and not military equipment. They will NEVER be left behind again to suffer fates worse than death, itself.

I have no doubt that all of our fallen warriors since 1776, both human and K-9, are in Paradise.

Thank you for stopping by to comment on the post about our Mondo. My mom says you are so right--she feels like everything just stopped, frozen and can't let herself believe it yet. Hearing from friends helps so much.

love & wags,
River & his mom

Amen!
But my heart is breaking at your posts that follow this one...of those dear dogs so mistreated and killed. How can people do that? People just do not understand the difference Christianity makes in the world... in how animals are treated is just one small way (not always of course but by the majority of the population in the Christian west.)
