Photo Of The Day: Dog’s Life

IDF dog on a stretcher being carried in Gaza

Dogs are being used by the IDF for finding tunnels. Unfortunately it’s dangerous work for both the dogs and their handlers. But when one is injured, you can bet he or she is treated with respect and care. Shared by Pierre Rehov with this text:

A Muslim woman, who had fled Iran, once told me “It is better to be a dog in a democracy, than to be poor in a Muslim country”. In Israel, every life is precious. And if one of our dogs is wounded during combat, the army takes a special care of him. This is our army. This is Israel !

    Who says a German Shepherd is not a Jew’s best friend?

    But count on the Israel haters to condemn Israel yes – for even saving a dog!

    In the canine corps, one sniff is worth a thousand words.
