This picture has receive so much wonderful feedback not only on Face Book where I found it, but on Twitter where I shared it this evening.
We are proud of our military, regardless of the branch. However, we are also extremely proud of our four-footed soldiers. They give unconditionally and serve just as seriously as their human companions. This monument is for Marine War Dogs, but War Dogs are serving in all branches of our military and are heroes in fur on four paws to me.
I also want to honor all the wonderful K-9 police dogs. They serve just as proud, give their all and their lives like their military brothers and sisters.
Below is a micro poem I wrote after seeing the above picture for the first time:
*Four feet ~ big heart ~ unconditional love ~ will give his life for his country ~ a war dog ~ my hero
Always, I wish you peace, joy and happiness, but most of all I wish you LOVE.
As Ever, Annie
