    Nice, the dogs have given us great service over the years and deserve all the recognition and rewards we can give them.

      Yes, dogs have given sterling service over the years, particularly when well trained and treated.

      It is a pity that the 'other' side often uses them as well. I remember reading about the close and hard fighting between Canadians and Brits, and the Japanese in and around the Repulse Bay hotel, Hong Kong - the Japanese war dogs were considered a pain in the butt by our guys.

      ps. The hotel [I have photos of my family sunbathing by it], has since been demolished.
