If you have not read or heard about the Marine military working dog handler Cpl Dustin Lee and his mwd Lex then check them out. Cpl Lee was killed in action during the War on Terror but his mwd Lex survived and has been adopted by Cpl Lee’s family. This is video of Lex in a Veterans Day Parade in Phoenix from this past month.

A military dog in the British Army, Buster was awarded the Hero Dog of the Year award back in 2005 by Crufts,  “the world’s largest dog show.” No matter where you go in the world, you can see the enthusiasm and passion handler’s have for their dogs and their jobs. During the interview they ask how many people Buster is responsible for saving. I’ll let you listen to the response in the video, basically you cannot put a number on the lives that have been saved if you find the weapons, explosives, etc before they are allowed to be used again. I love how a dog as simple and innocent looking as Buster is can be responsible for achieving such great accomplishments.
