"When man is in trouble,
God sends him a dog."
--Alphonse de Lamartine
Throughout history, there have been numerous canine heroes who have left their paw prints on the hearts of humans. Some have served their country in times of war, some are known for their search and rescue efforts, some are remembered for their extraordinary acts of loyalty and devotion, some assist law enforcement officers, some serve as eyes and ears for their masters, some detect seizures and heart attacks, some are therapy dogs for the ill and elderly, some protect their humans in times of trouble or attack, and countless others are heroes to their owners because of the love and companionship they provide each and every day.
Below are some of my favorite links
