Yeah, the Soviets never had much of a good track record with dogs... Sending them into space in non-pressurized capsules... Strapping bombs to them and sending them to look for food under German tanks... That last one is hilarious in the most tragic way possible as they trained them with soviet tanks. Dogs, being more intelligent than the Russians gave them credit, saw the German tanks and then saw the Soviet tanks and thought, "I don't recognize those ones but those look like the ones that always have food under them."

 

Every dog they actually tried to use in battle they had to shoot. That's the tragic part. The funny part is the people who came up with the idea were idiots.

Funny but sad.  I might even go so far as to say they treated their people in similar fashion.  Not everyone puts the same weight on the value of life that's for sure.

Unfortunately most of us are chattel in the grand scheme of things, along with our animal "friends". The good news is that we all die in the end, no man or beast can escape that so live every day like it could be your last.

Cute, I love Mastiff's expressions!

 

Had her for a few months now, but just started posting here at Head-Fi, so here we go.  Eos is a four month old Bernese Mountain Dog.  I was snapping some pictures of my latest pen and she was trying to chew up the carpet:

DSC03354.JPG Our desert mutt as a puppy. Her mom had a litter of 7, and they were found in a really run down area of Dubai. The pups were only 3 days old. Can't find any adult photos, she's 3 years old now.
