Animals in the News

Meet Eddie. Soldier. Combat veteran. Lifesaver. Belgian Malinois. (video at the link)

This was his retirement ceremony.

Staff Sgt. Shannon Hutto thought his bomb sniffing dog Eddie was just being lazy when he wouldn’t move from a certain spot one hot day in Afghanistan in 2012.

But Hutto then saw what Eddie smelled: a homemade bomb, partially buried in the dirt. It was six inches from Hutto’s foot.

"It was a high stress moment."

They gave him pie after the honors. This is appropriate and good because, pie.

ALSO Gandalf's white horsey passed recently.

Run Shadowfax. Show us the meaning of haste. Video of him and the White Wizard below the fold.
