Recognizing a hero dog and remembering his human partner

On this Memorial Day fellow pet blogger John Woestendiek brings us the tale of the unique bond between Lex, the bomb-sniffing German Shepherd, and his Marine partner Dustin Lee who served together in Iraq and the fight to make Lex a part of Lee family. Click here for the full story.

Lex - who won the Purple Heart for his valor - and thousands of other military hero dogs who have served the nation with honor and without recognition over the last century will one day be immortalized at the National War Dogs Memorial in Washington.
