The bond between Man and his Best Friend

I watched the news last night and it included an item and documentary footage about this incident.

L/Cpl Liam Tasker was working in Afghanistan with his explosive detection dog Theo when Liam was shot and killed by a sniper. Sadly the incident seems to have been so traumatic for Theo that he sufferd a siezure and died back at base.

I have worked with dogs and handlers in both the Police and Army and the bond between the members of these little teams is painfuly obvious, particularly within the military.

I am not ashamed to say a tear came to my eye as I watched the item.


  1. The Dickin Medal for Theo!!

  2. I know what you mean, having had to put one dog down and lost four dogs over the years.

    I didn't dare to watch it as I know that I would be crying.
