1. Czech defense minister awards bomb-sniffing German shepherd seriously injured in Afghanistan


PRAGUE –  Like many military victims of a Taliban attack in Afghanistan, Athos was treated by American doctors in the field, flown to the U.S. Ramstein base in Germany for his recovery, then awarded for his bravery back home.

But Athos is a bomb-sniffing German shepherd who was helping Czech forces in Afghanistan, not a soldier, and during a ceremony honoring him on Tuesday, he received a buffalo bone and a leather collar.

  2. 5/ I wonder what gave away his Middle Eastern origins, and what ‘Middle Eastern’ means here exactly. I’m guessing he’s not Israeli. If the police have information more specific than that they should release it.
