A SOWT told me about this link I mean I knew about Tsgt Gutierrez. But I didn’t know the whole story. And this outlines the whole story. Just woah. If this doesn’t get upgraded to a MOH. I will be surprised.

thre3ring I know he did. But I think that’s is MOH quality. Plus the SOWT guy who showed me says he will be Pissed lol if he doesn’t get it lol.

Honestly I believe he deserves it. But the community probably doesn’t want the publicity.

Name the idiotic SOWT that said that.

He got the air force cross

His AF Cross should be upgraded to the MOH in my opinion.

GZ couldn’t give less of a shit about the MOH. He’s just happy he’s alive and kicking.

Taken from Military Working Dogs Facebook page.
In memory of MWD Puck: The day I have dreaded for so long has finally arrived. My best friend of 9.5 years has crossed rainbow bridge. There are so many memories that we have shared. I’ll never forget meeting him for the first time in February 2005. I was a green handler and he was a green dog; we were both straight from the school house. He taught me a lot as a K9 Handler, but most importantly, he taught me how to trust. In 2006, on our deployment to Iraq, he was my rock, my companion, and my crazy comedian. The longest we were apart for those six months was four hours. When we returned to the states, he stayed in his kennel while I took a couple days off. I’ll never forget the excitement in his bark/whine when he saw me again for the first time. He refused to walk on all four paws, he wanted to walk next to me, like a person. Soon after that, while patrol training, he developed a compressed spinal cord from hitting too hard. The Vets worked day in and day out trying to fix him. He was later transferred to Lackland AFB (main Military Working Dog hub). My heart sank as I dropped him off and said “goodbye” for (what I thought at the time) the last time. Nearly two weeks after that (and being a pain in the rear to the Vets down there), I received the phone call I had been waiting for “MWD Puck is an adoptable candidate and he will no longer be able to be utilized as an MWD due to his injury”. He became clumsy after his injury, which doesn’t work out for explosive dogs. December 22, 2007, Puck came HOME! We soon transferred to Guam and later back to VA. While doing my security clearance for my current position, the Investigator commented, “The people I have interviewed said you don’t have any kids but you have ‘Puck’ and he’s your son”. It’s obvious everyone knew how important he was to me. August 2012, Puck was given 6-12 months due to a tumor on his adrenal gland. We have been very grateful of this extra time with him. We have been able to feed him steak, chicken, and as many treats as he can handle. He even learned how to train people to get him treats. I know there are so many lives he has touched to include those he met while being a therapy dog. Unfortunately, Puck developed a huge tumor (undetermined if it’s related to the adrenal gland tumor) that has slowly been bleeding. I know he’s in a lot less pain, and it would be selfish to keep him suffering anymore. He was a fighter until he lost all strength. He will always be in my heart and there won’t be a day that goes by I won’t think of him. The next few days will be a struggle but I will remember the great, goofy times we’ve had together. To all of the MWD Handlers that gave Puck a final farewell, I can not thank you enough. You proved how close our community is. Thank you for showing up on such a short notice, it honestly meant a lot to me. To my best friend, I will forever miss you and will always love you. Until we meet again…"If there are no dogs in heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went." -Will RogersMWD (ret.) Puck (H066)January 1, 2003-July 8, 2014

raw-fed-pets:

All dogs share the same basic digestive system despite the range of physical variations (and attitudes) across different breeds. Every dog is designed to eat a raw animal-based diet, from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane. Breed-specific dog food brands are simply a marketing gimmick aimed at playing on the pet owner’s emotions, and their desire to feed their pet the best possible diet.

I don’t think that dogs need an animal-based diet. If done right they can be vegan and not contribute to the murdering of innocent animals. We’ve adapted and domesticated them enough to do so. They’ve evolved to live without meat just like us.

200% incorrect. Vegan diets are carbohydrate-based. Carbohydrates are inflammatory, feed cancer (glucose), contribute to periodontal disease (leading to systemic organ failure, eg heart), cause insulin spikes leading to a multitude of other issues in the long-term (thyroid, liver, diabetes, heart disease) and also cause pancreatic problems due to extreme stress on the pancreas (secreting heavy loads of carb enzymes over a long period of time). The low moisture content coupled with high plant protein may also cause renal failure in the long term. The preservatives used may also be linked to cancer (BHA, BHT etc), and these diets also skew the omega3/6 ratio, causing further inflammation (linked to cancer again). They cause urine alkalinity leading to urinary problems such as crystals, blockages and UTI’s.
Brief into to dog anatomy/physiology:
- Stomach PH: Their highly acidic stomach is designed for eliminating harmful bacteria and breaking down bone into a gel-like substance. Humans have a much more alkaline stomach acid which is why we would struggle to digest raw bone.
-Digestive Enzymes: Higher level of proteases to break down animal protein. High bile load to help push through bacteria.
-Dental Anatomy: Sharp pointed teeth designed for ripping and tearing flesh and bones.Dogs do not chew their food as we do, they are wired to swallow chunks quickly as a basic survival instinct.
-Jaws: Dogs also have strong jaws that physically cannot move sideways (like your own can). This sideways grinding action is a feature that allows pre-digestion of plant material. Again, dogs rip off chunks and swallow them whole.
-Lack of Salivary Amylase: Omnivores have this for pre-digestion of carbohydrates. Dogs and cats do not. The canine pancreas secretes amylase as a backup, however this does not mean they should be fed a high carbohydrate diet every day for a lifetime. Processed food (incl vegan) is 40-70% carbohydrate.
-Lysozyme: Instead of amylase, dogs have lysozyme in their saliva which is an antibacterial. This may be useful for destroying any harmful bacteria in carrion/rotten food/feces, as well as wound cleaning.
-Gut length: The canine gut is short in length which is because flesh must be pushed through quickly. It does not need to sit and ferment, as this could allow bacteria to multiply to harmful levels. Note that plant eating animals have a long digestive tract and even multiple stomach chambers in order for plant material to be slowly broken down by the necessary enzymes.
-Nutrient profiles. Dogs have 0% biological requirement for carbohydrates. They gain every single essential nutrient from a prey based diet such as Whole Prey/Prey Model. Vegan diets are full of processed lab-made vitamins and minerals. Many vitamin pre-mixes are made in china and shipped to the country of manufacture.
All in all, dogs will survive on a high carbohydrate diet but it will cause systemic effects eventually. Similar to smoking, a junk food diet affects every dog differently and some may be affected more severely than others, and in different time spans. You can also expect high vet fees in the form of dental cleanings, dental surgeries and various health problem later on in life.
It is not recommended that you feed your pet the equivalent of a big mac for the entirety of its life. This is essentially what kibble and vegan diets are. Evolution has changed the appearance and even the behaviour of your dog, but their digestive system is still geared towards meat. Basically, you are paying money to have a company slowly kill your pet from the inside out. 
0/10, Not Recommended.
