Saving Sergeant Rex.

I think this blog by Phil, Mouse of the Hedge, says it all.

I am not into internet petitions, or any petitions, as I think they rarely work. But I have signed this one, and I would encourage anyone else to do so too. You don’t have to be in America – if I can sign from Gib, I reckon the rest of you can too.

Read the full post, and check out the comments.

No pension, though.

He’s 10 years old.

Sergeant Rex, a German Shepherd military dog, faces death from the very ones he’s devoted his life to protecting. The Marines decided to “put him down” because of his age and he “can no longer serve”

But not without a fight from a devoted friend.

Former Corporal Megan Leavey, of Rockland County, wants to give Rex a forever home and let him enjoy the rest of his life in comfort and peace among friends.
