    "Digger" is what we call our soldiers. Lovely story and some wonderful kindness to this animal by an unknown Afghani man and an American soldier called John.

    Well done, Digger. I hope you enjoy your pensioner years--collecting a full benefit of bones and human affection!

    Good Dog! :D

    Dogs are so useful there and in Iraq. While at a veterinary surgeon last year, I met a retiring lab and his handler. Too cute and very useful. Some funny stories, too.
