Military dogs euthanized as ‘equipment’ under cruel law

If roadside bombs and other hazards of war don’t kill military dogs, senseless government regulations and red tape might. The United States is breeding 100 puppies a year to train for bomb sniffing and other soldierly duties, but many aren’t making it back to happy homes because an obscure federal law classifies them as "equipment" rather than personnel — and makes adopting them a financial and bureaucratic nightmare.

A bill to require that the military ship the heroic dogs home and ease potential veterinarian costs for adopting families is currently bogged down in Congress, as dogs continue to be euthanized. In the meantime, at least there is an occasional happy ending.

Please contact Congress (the House and Senate) and tell them to pass this bill NOW! It should take 10-minutes to pass to save these canine Veterans! Just another example of Congressional stupidity and incompetence! And I guess with all the executive orders that have been signed by President Obama, signing one more to save these K-9 heroes until Congress acts isn’t an option when you come from a family and ideological background where you eat dogs or hate and kill dogs?

In Dreams from My Father, President Obama wrote, “With Lolo (Obama’s stepfather) I have learned how to eat small green chili peppers raw with dinner, plenty of rice, and away from the dinner people I was introduced to dog meat, tough, snake meat, tougher, and roasted grasshopper.”
