If you we're able to watch 60 minutes tonight you caught a glimpse of some true heroes. They had a segment on the military bomb dogs. Those are truly some bad ass dogs. I love my labs. They bring me joy and they are affectionate. They also win
an occasional ribbon and are great hunting partners. They always come back with the bird. But, I have never asked them to jump out of airplanes from 15,000 feet or rappel off a helicopter into the land of terrorists. Nor have I asked them to put there nose on a bomb or be lead thru a mine field. Those dogs and their trainers and handlers are the real deal. Of course at the end of the interview the reported asked the handler (who lost both his legs in a bomb blast) if he felt bad about putting a dog in harms way. He did have a good answer though.
