Brutus And Hugging A Baby

Thought you might like to know about this dog and his history. The ending is quite amazing after you read the beginning…..

Ira Riklis Trivia

The K9 above is Brutus, a military K9 at McChord.. … He’s huge – part Boxer
and part British Bull Mastiff and
tops the scales at 200 lbs.
His handler took the picture.
Brutus is running toward me
because he knows I have some
Milkbone treats, so he’s slobbering away!
I had to duck around a tree just
before he got to me in case he
couldn’t stop, but he did.
Brutus was the recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor last year from his tour in Iraq . His handler and
four other soldiers were taken hostage by
insurgents. Brutus and his handler communicate by sign language and he gave Brutus the signal that
meant ‘go away but come back
and find me’. The Iraqis paid
no attention to Brutus. He came back
later and quietly tore the throat out of
one guard at one door and another guard at another door. He then jumped against one of the doors repeatedly
(the guys were being held in an old warehouse)
until it opened. He went in and untied his handler and they all escaped. He’s the first K9 to receive this honor.
If he knows you’re ok, he’s a big old lug and wants to sit in your lap. He enjoys the company of cats.
K-9 Congressional Medal
of Honor Winner thought
you’d find this interesting.
Talk about animal intelligence and bonding with humans!
Remember that they can’t do a lot of things for
themselves and they depend on you to make
their life a quality life!
Instructions for properly hugging a baby
(from a dog’s point of view):

1. First, uh, find a baby.

5. Finally, if a camera is present, you will need to execute
the difficult and patented ‘hug, smile, and lean’ so
as to achieve the best photo quality.
