Wordless Wednesday {{linky}}

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY
(not so wordless this week!)
We had a "spouses' day" at my husbands company. He's the commander for the Engineer K9 Company. They have dogs that detect MDD/SSD (in other words, mines). Its such a unique company, I wanted to know more and let other spouses see that as well. It was a wonderful day and it went just as planned! Here are a few pictures:

We were paired up with a handler and their dog for the day. This dog is Deno (dee-no)
We took them out for their walk, then cleaned their kennels


Next was the canine first aid, trying our hand on a fake dog leg

(I'm the red-head!)

Doing physical exams
And trying our hand in the dirty work.....I let someone else get "hands-on"


Poor dog got many "examinations" that day. Can't imagine whats going through his head!
Then they showed us how they train the mine dogs in their lanes....really cool!

And the dogs are definitely life savers. My friend's son did 2 tours. On one of them, he got left behind and only had his dog for the night, in the winter. His dog dug a hole, put the soldier in it and slept on top of him. The both survived!

Thanks for sharing and tell your husband thanks for what he does!
