    I am so happy you were able to adopt your brother in arms. I hope all the returning K-9's have the same result as Layka had with you. Msgt/USAF (Ret)

    Thank you Staff Sgt for taking care of you brother Layka, for your love, commitment and loyalty to your dog and for your beliefs in what we owe and have a responsibility to these dogs for saving our soldiers, their brothers. I thank you and your brothers for your service each and every day. God Bless you for taking care of Layka and giving her a good home that she needs and the love she so rightly deserves! May other dogs find homes too! DML MA

    This is a wonderful story and all our service dogs should have the same opportunity as this sweet pup. They are so willing to please their fellow soldiers and even if they do not know they are putting themselves in danger. Not one of these soldiers should be discarded after they have served their time. Thank All the Service Personnel, 2 legged and 4 legged for the sacrifice for keeping our Country Safe. Also, to Their Families who Bravely Live without Them while they are gone. Bless all of You. They one problem I have with this video is, the child should not be allowed to poke,pull or put fingers in the eye, even the most docile pet could react badly to that.. I hope they teach the little guy animal etiquette. Please take care and enjoy your new family member
