Thanksgiving: A time to remember and give thanks. The dogs in these stories, who have saved numerous lives, remind us to be grateful. To them, and to all the canines in our world, whether they be highly-trained service dogs or just the excitable puppy dashing about our feet we give thanks.
There is a new type of working dog, trained specifically to combat the explosives used by terrorists. Unlike bomb dogs, which focus on a stationary object, the “anti-terrorist” trained dog can follow the vapor from explosives, which lingers in the air and on the terrorists’ clothes or body.
Disasters often bring out exceptional response — and none may be more valued than the dogs who come to help find victims, and in this case, to also comfort them.
