happy fourth of july!

(Oh lovely, Blogger's not letting anyone post images today.)

Celebrate well and remember to look out for your furry friends and family when the booms start coming!  Meanwhile, in appreciation for our armed forces who served, including the four footed, I bring you this link from the U.S. Coast Guard of the brave mascots that followed their crews to war.
You'll meet:
 - Pete the Pooch, Able Seaman (Seadog?)
 - Tarawa and Kodiak, the cat and dog at loggerheads: who will win ascendancy of the LST?
 - Bozo, who landed in the brig for conduct unbecoming a mascot (= he chewed the captain's shoes; no fear, he got bailed out).
 - and many more!
