Black and White Sunday: Socki At Your Service

C&SOCKI BW

I love this picture of Peanut and Socki taken in 2004.  Socki was the most wonderful service dog for Aunt Judi, who has Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  Socki was the first service dog we ever got to know and he did everything for Judi.  Every year we would come up to New York to have a family weekend and see a show.  Socki came to many a Broadway show with us, the Rockett’s at Radio Music Hall, and even the American Girl store.  He was amazing.

There was that one time when we went to see “Beauty and the Beast,” and we had to take him into the hall because they were shooting guns and it really upset him.  Oh, and that time he met a bomb sniffing dog at the concession stand and they just really got into a conversation, we guess about work.

We miss you Socki.  Thank you for teach us about how wonderful a life of service can be.

Have a good year at college, Peanut.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Memorial Day ’14: Soldier Dogs – The 4-Legged Heros

Today is Memorial Day in the United States of America.

 

I repost this story every year, because soldier dogs are truly amazing heros.

These are some of my favorite images from the new book Soldier Dogs. There are more pictures in our slideshow today.

Military Working Dogs play a crucial part in America’s armed services. The best known “Soldier Dog,” Cairo, put crucial canine skills to work in the SEAL Team Six operation that killed Osama Bin Laden. Other Military Working Dogs serve as everything from bomb sniffers to troop companions to search and rescue dogs (and also serve in darker roles, such as duty at Guantanamo Bay). Their handlers and trainers, devoted dog lovers down to a man, form an unusually close-knit fraternity within the military.
