Beverly Hills Courier Photo Slideshows
This Holiday, Let Us Remember Those Who Keep Us Safe, And Their Canine Partners
The Courier received a series of 25 photographs of soldiers and their canines. They are produced here in their entirety with the original captions, author(s) unknown. Each photo bears a tale (tail?) of courage, companionship and hardship in pursuit of the one gift so many of us take for granted - freedom. Somewhere, this holiday, soldiers are keeping us safe around the world. The luckiest ones will share their holidays with a dog. Happy Holidays, and thank you, wherever you are.
So nice to see those brave dogs being looked after!
This is my human there are many like it but this one is mine… And the guy on the left has a BIG smile on his face. It's his dog and he is glad it found another lap to sit on instead of his.(Note the brown leash)
Oh, come on. We both fit on this thing! See?
I totally saw the dog and his wonderful wing man, never really paid attention to anything else until I started reading the comments. Thank you to our military and their very special dogs who are sent into the worse case scenarios.
My son was half of a K9 couple. His first partner was Banjo, explosives detection. Oh, the stories we've heard! His second partner was Brit, drug dog. I have nothing but the utmost respect for all K9 teams.
He/she deserved it! Thank you for your service, sweet, little puppy.
Look at the power in the thighs and shoulders of this soldier. And that beautiful, determined face. I grew up being told by my Air Force father that women could never serve in combat. Oh, yeah? Tell that to this American soldier! To paraphrase Lincoln: "SHE who shall have borne the battle…"
He looks so fierce, but sad… Tears rolling down his/hers face.
They trust each other!
The dog survived, the handler sadly, did not.
He is receiving a medal for his service to our Country...well deserved.
Let's go for a walk they said. It'll be fun, they said.
Best friend I could of ever asked for!
If only we humans would love one another this way, too.
Every K9 soldier would give their life for their partner, no question they are angels of war...bond beyond words.
Hey, that's an Israeli soldier!
The love of a dog is the closest thing to the love God has for the human race. ;-) Greater love hath no man than to lay down his life for his friends…
Thank you for your service .Now run free over the rainbow bridge.
Not a K9 Soldier, but nonetheless, a dog who will serve. His contribution to morale and the mental health of the soldiers who found him and take care of him, and hopefully, who will bring him home with them should also be recognized. Not a War Dog, but still a Dog of War.
That is an awesome picture!
The sharp dried weeds and grass was probably hurting the dog's feet. Saw another picture once where the human soldier was carrying his dog over burning hot sand. If it's too hot or cold on the ground for you to go barefooted, it's too hot or cold for animals too. “He ain't heavy he's my brother!”

He looks like he's saying its okay. We got this covered.
Gary Sinise is front and center with his dedication to assisting American veterans and service men and women. He was honored with the 2,606th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this month with the event attended by military personel and his family.
