World’s Most Interesting Dog
He can speak French, in Russian… You can see his charisma from space… Sharks have a week dedicated to him…
He also played a key role in the recent raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound, and has become the world’s most interesting dog.
According to sources, a military dog joined (led?) the American raid on Bin Laden’s compound last week. The mysterious dog was reportedly strapped to the back of a Navy SEAL who was lowered from a Black Hawk helicopter in the raid that ultimately killed Osama Bin Laden.
Last year when asked about dogs role in the war on terror, General Petraeus was quoted as saying, “The capability they bring to the fight cannot be replicated by man or machine.”
Although the White House and Pentagon won’t confirm that the dog took part in the raid, it is reported that the U.S. military employs over 2,700 dogs who are very popular with U.S. Troops; the most common dog breeds being German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois. (Although Labrador Retrievers have had a recent increase in popularity, walking ahead of troops to sniff out potential danger)
The mystery dog’s role in the raid is also unknown, but one can speculate that it’s mission included sniffing out potential explosives or people hidden within the compound. (Remember that Saddam Hussein was found hiding in a “spider hole” under ground)
News of the mysterious canine hero has been reported by media outlets including the New York Times.
Who is this mystery dog? Stay thirsty, my friends.
