Military Dog Monument in Washington DC

With over 15 years working in the pet industry, I can honestly say this is something that really moved me. A monument is being built--with private funds to honor military working dogs who have served along side our human veterans. Military service dogs have helped protect our freedoms for nearly 70 years in four branches of the US Armed Forces. As it turns out, my employer, Natural Balance Pet Foods is helping to raise funds for this military dog monument. It is all coming together through our new reality TV show 'Who Let the Dogs Out' on Animal Planet. In the new episode that airs this coming Saturday March 3rd, Tillman, (the world's fastest skateboarding dog) went to Washington DC with the gang to meet with Congressman Jones and A veteran named John Burnam, who is an advocate for the dog monument. You really need to watch this episode to find out what its all about. Anyone who is a friend to the military or has a loved one in the service will appreciate this episode of Who Let the Dogs Out because it highlights the strength of the human-animal and how amazing (and brave) dogs really are.
Also in this Saturday's episode is when Tillman went to visit the training facility for military dogs, who do all kinds of cool things including disaster recovery, search and rescue, etc. Tillman's visit to the 947th Military Police Detachment, of the 3rd US Infantry Regiment was really cool. If you love seeing dogs work, and be trained, and if you love and respect our military as much as I do, you will really love this week's episode of Who Let the Dogs Out.
Set your DVR or TiVo to record the episode on Animal Planet. It airs Saturday mornings 10 am eastern, 9 central, and for the west coast check local listings for your cable company.

I think it is brilliant to have a monument to these Military dogs.
They too have served our Country.
