Website of the Week…

     This week, we’d like to remember some of the animals who have given their lives in the course of war. Our choice is the Key West Collies blog.The website had a wonderful tribute to the dogs who served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Known as “Devil Dogs,” hundreds of Doberman pinschers, German shepherds, and even a few mongrels found their way to the Pacific islands of Guam, Saipan, Okinawa, and Iwo Jima. Take a trip back through time, as you examine the pictures of war dogs and their handlers. Of the 549 dogs who survived the battlefield, only four were deemed unfit for adoption. Sadly, Twenty-five of the dogs on duty in Guam were never to return to the United States. They were buried in the War Dog Cemetery in Guam. In 1994, a War Dog Memorial was dedicated to the dogs buried in Guam. We would like to offer a 21-bark salute to those fallen heroes. RIP, heroes

In addition to its dedication to these canine war heroes, the site is, as its name states, devoted to Key West Collies. A most recent submission has a collie named Essex sitting on the floor behind bags of candy. The event is described as “Collieween.” Along with Essex, Key West Collies also feature the adventures of another collie, Sherman.

There also are contributions from visitors, called “Cyber Paw Pals.” Often, these items include photos and art work. And to top off the entertaining site, there is a clock, which is accurate and is called “Key West Collie Time.”

At the top of the blog is this message: “May your tail wag, your belly be full, and may you have a forever family to rub your tummy and scratch behind your ears.” – the collies’ blessing to other dogs.

Take a look at the Key West Collies blog for great photos of dogs at war and lots of fun pictures and stories about two loved collies and their many friends.
