    Please post and distribute this as far and as widely as possible:
    A good friend of the Senior Dogs Project who is in the military has been
    stationed in Mosul, Iraq, since last year. Soon after being stationed
    there, his great love of dogs (and the dogs' recognition of his feelings for
    them) led him to befriend a number of them who had been displaced by the
    turmoil of the war. Despite the friendly nature of the dogs and the fact
    that they were "strays" through no fault of their own, the military
    commander ordered that the dogs be rounded up and shot.
    A few of the dogs managed to evade the first round up, among them "Blue," a
    German Shepherd who had clearly been a police dog, but who is basically a
    lovebug. He waits quietly for our friend each morning, sitting beside his
    truck, asking for nothing more than a bit of attention and a few crumbs, and
    in return offering a wagging tail, trusting eyes, and loyal companionship.

    As of Monday, April 26, the commander in Mosul has reinstituted the "round
    up and shoot" orders and has told our friend that if Blue is still around on
    Friday, April 30, the commander will personally shoot him. We realize that
    there are many terrible things going on in Iraq and that innocent men,
    women, and children are dying. We don't understand the point, however, of
    deliberately shooting an old dog who offers nothing but comfort and
    affection to our beleaguered troops, asking nothing in return.

    If you can help in any way -- by contacting news media or anyone you may
    know in the military -- please do so. We may not be able to do anything
    to stop the horrific developments of the war in Iraq, but perhaps we can
    save the life of a few old dogs and the faith in humanity of a troop of
    Please let us know if you are able to take any action:

    I have just read about that on different board I think. That makes me sick.

    I am in Canada but I will email some of my newspapers and see if they will run something.
