News Reel - Remember the US Soldier and Dog?

Here's a bit of good news for a Saturday morning!

Remember the story that circulated in the news about how a US Soldier befriended a dog while serving her tour of duty in Iraq? (See original news article here) The military did not want her to bring the dog back. It created waves of protests from people, online petitions, news headlines, etc.

Well, this story has a happy ending. Check out the article here to find out what happened to this unlikely pair!

Happy ending indeed! It's so great to know that even in times of war we try to find ways to make a four-legged pal enjoy life! Didn't know about this program (Operation Baghdad Buddy) so thanks for linking this article. It's a bright star in the news dominated by abuse and fighting rings... Thanks!
