    Sniffer dog that went missing in action after Afghan battle is discovered safe and so

    Link

    A sniffer dog that went missing in action after a battle in Afghanistan has been found safe and well after more than a year in the desert.
    Sabi the black Labrador was with a joint Australian-Afghan army patrol when it was ambushed by Taliban militants in September 2008.
    Nine soldiers were wounded in the ensuing gun battle, which earned one Australian SAS trooper the country's highest bravery award.
    But there was no sign of the bomb-sniffing dog after the battle in a remote area of Uruzgan province.
    Sabi's handlers spent months scouring the desert looking for the four-year-old animal, but to no avail.
    Enlarge Having a ball: Sabi at Forward Operating Base Ripley in Tarin Kowt, Oruzgan Province, Afghanistan, after her amazing return
    Last week - 14 months after she disappeared - a U.S. serviceman spotted a dog with an Afghan man at an isolated patrol base in another part of Uruzgan.
    The Afghan handed Sabi over and the American quickly realised she must be a military-trained animal.
    Within days, the Labrador was returned to her unit - no worse for wear.


    That's an awesome story.

    Awesome story indeed, I love Dogs.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    The dog's value to mankind is far, far greater than most Islamics - and its time that they realized this....They should be embarrassed.
    The man, an Afghani, should be given a reward, IMO.
