We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four legs!

 K-9 Congressional Medal of Honor Winner
From a veteran:

Summary: We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and  joyfulness. It is  here on earth and has four  legs! 

To you animal lovers and those that aren't, this is a gentle reminder of what is valued most.            

The K9 above is Brutus, a military K9 at McChord. He's huge - part Boxer and  part British  Bull Mastiff and tops the scales at 200  lbs. His handler took the  picture. Brutus is running  toward me because he knows I have some Milk  Bone  treats, so he's slobbering away! 

Brutus won the Congressional Medal of Honor last year from his tour in Iraq. His handler and four other soldiers were taken hostage by insurgents. Brutus and his handler  communicate by sign language and  he gave Brutus the signal that meant 'go away but come back and find me'. 

The Iraqis paid no attention to Brutus. He cam e back later and quietly tore the throat out of one  guard at one door and another  guard at another door.  He then jumped against one of the doors  repeatedly  (the guys were being held in an old warehouse) until it opened. He went in and untied his handler and  they all  escaped. He's the first K9 to receive this  honor. If he knows you're  ok, he's a big old lug and  wants to sit in your lap. Enjoys the  company of cats.

Thought you'd find this  interesting. Talk about animal  intelligence and  bonding with humans!

Remember that they can't do a lot of things for themselves and that they depend on you to make their life a quality life!

 1. My life is likely to last   10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
 2. Give me time to understand  what you want of  me.
 3. Place your trust in me. It is   crucial for my well-being.
 4. Don't be angry with me for   long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have  your work,  your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.
 5.  Talk to me. Even if I don't  understand your words, I do understand  your voice  when speaking to me.
 6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
 7. Before you hit me, before  you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and  yet, I  choose not to bite you.
 8. Before you scold me for  being lazy  or uncooperative, ask yourself  ifsomething might be bothering me.  Perhaps I'm not  getting the right food, I have been in the sun too   long, or my heart might be getting old or  weak..
 9.  Please take care of me when  I grow old. You too, will grow  old..
 10. On the ultimate difficult  journey, go with me please. Never say you can't  bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there,  because I love you  so.

Take a moment today to thank  God for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of  them.

Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without God's  critters
Now  please pass this on to other pet owners. We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by hope, love, and  joyfulness. It is  here on earth and has four  legs!
