All of you who know me know how I love dogs. I have three rescue dogs. I think dogs are amazing. They can help rescue, they can lead the blind, they can help with other handicaps, even letting someone know when a seizure is about to happen. They can sniff out drugs, and help find bodies in rubble. They chase down bad guys with police. They comfort us. They love us unconditionally. Yeah, I got it bad for dogs.
So, it’s no surprise that a dog helped the Navy Seals. 
The explosive-sniffing dog was strapped to an assault team member as they took on one of their greatest challenges to date.
He was part of the operation in which the elite US Navy Seals lowered themselves down ropes from three Black Hawk helicopters into the terrorist supremo’s hideout in the town of Abbottabad, Pakistan, on Sunday.
Heavily armoured hounds – equipped with infrared night-sight cameras – have been used in the past by the top-secret unit.
The war dogs wear ballistic body armour that is said to withstand damage from single and double-edged knives, as well as protective gear which shields them from shrapnel and gunfire.
German Shepherds have been leading the way in SAS raids in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Wearing oxygen masks, the pooches have been trained to jump from aircraft at 25,000ft, before seeking out insurgents in hostile environments.
Dogs were also used in the capture of Saddam Hussein and in the killing of the Iraqi dictator’s two sons.
Is there nothing these four legged wonders can’t do? Awesome is the only word for them.
