A Marine's best friend

I never was a pet person. Of course, I wouldn't abuse an animal or tolerate anyone else doing so. But, I just didn't want to be bothered with the responsibility of one. That's changed over the last few years as somehow we've ended with 3 dogs on the place. Due primarily as a result of others' irresponsibility and not any desire on our part to have pets. However, as much as I resisted them, those hounds have slowly schmoozed their way into our lives and psyches, and all right, I'll say it, our hearts.

So, I guess now I'm a dog person. Which I believe helps me better understand and appreciate this story from American Thinker. A sad, but touching one about a Marine's best friend.
