Canines to the Rescue

I ran across an article today, written by Jonah Goldberg just after the events of September 11, about what drives a working dog. None of you puppy raisers or guide dog handlers will be surprised in the slightest. Here's an excerpt:
The dog is the only animal that volunteers for duty. If we want other animals -- horses, oxen, mules, falcons, bears, or parrots -- to come to our aid, we must either force them or bribe them.
Here's the rest of the article. Bring Kleenex.

I just read that article. It was great. Dogs really are amazing creatures...They are in a league of their own.
