Dog book of the month or so:
This is the 5th in our series of dog books. We are featuring "Sergeant Rex", by Mike Dowling. This is a non-fiction book that features a marine handler and his dog. They were deployed to Iraq's infamous Triangle of Death in 2004, and Sergeant Dowling and his working dog Rex were part of the first military K9 teams sent to the front lines of combat since Vietnam. Rex's job was to find weapons, suicide bombers, and IED's. Dowling takes us into the searing 130 degree heat, the choking dust and the threat of violent attack. This is a moving story of how a man and a dog developed complete trust in each other in the face of terrible adversity. Sergeant Rex is an unforgettable tale of sacrifice, courage, and love.
Sergeant Rex served 11 years as a military working dog. Today, Sgt. Rex is retired and living the good life with his 2nd handler and trainer, marine corporal Megan Leavey. Leavey and Rex were both injured in Iraq, which brought and end to Leavey's creeer.

I started my love affair with German shepherds when I got my first shepherd when I was 12 years old. His name was Captain, and he was my protector. He walked me to school and back each day, and when I started working he would walk me to my bus stop and back. He also bit my boyfriends, so needless to say, I didn't date much in high school. Having and raising them is so much more than a hobby--it is my passion. And, thankfully my husband loves the shepherds as much as I do.
