I'm sitting here absolutely blubbering like a big baby. Sallie was my favourite story until I read the ones about the SAR's dogs at the World Trade Centre. When it comes to courage you simply can't go past a dog and when it comes to providing comfort where there surely is none, then a dog is the way to go. This really touched me deeply Moi.

Happy MM.

Awwwww - this is the best example of how man's best friend is truly one courageous beast.

Thanks for giving them their due.

I have to admit that the dogs werent the first thing that sprang to mind when I thought of courage but, in retrospect, it is undeniable that I should have included them. Thank you for reminding me. Happy MM :)

This ranks as my #1, all-time favorite MM post. What a great reminder of how our canine friends don't hesitate to jump in on the dirty jobs, not for glory or fame, but for the simple pleasure of a pat on the head--and maybe a treat or two. I'm sorry, but this post *so* drives me to anthropomorphize them.
