With Black Friday and Cyber Monday right around the corner, it’s time for pet parents to stock up on anything and everything that can bring more joy, convenience, and fun to our pets’ lives. Check out our ideas for pet gifts that are sure to leave your furry guy or gal jumping (or purring) for joy this holiday season.
While our canine counterparts have assisted us on the battlefields for millennia, they weren’t officially recognized – or formally trained – until 1942. Since World War II, more than 30,000 dogs have served in the military, with over 5,000 in Korea and Vietnam. Over 2,000 active duty dogs have been deployed around the world in the last 5 years alone, earning a vast collection of awards, medal, and ribbons.
We owe a great deal to our country’s canine veterans. Their contributions to the military are a testament to their fine-tuned proficiency, but their unparalleled dedication and bravery have earned them a greater place in world history. As we honor our military this Veterans Day, let us also remember the loyal service and sacrifice of military dogs.
