The WolfPack Grows

This is ‘Lucky’.  He is another of our ‘rescues’ and still only a pup, but is growing every day.  The Neps have tied a bell around his neck and at night you can hear him tinkling around the compound, chasing Junior and annoying Kandy (who has taken on the role of matriarch and pack leader).  Lucky is a real ball of mischief and all the lads love the dirty little sod.

UPDATE 2019hrs: Kandy and Junior have obviously been instructing Lucky. He just snarled at an LN and chased him across part of the compound.  Kandy backed him up barking her encouragement. It’s obvious that our three dogs hate the locals (and anyone who looks and smells like them). They must have led a life of abuse and fear before we got them and now, feeling protected, they are giving it back.  We don’t let the dogs chase the locals and we never let them actually attack – each of the mutts gets a clip over the nose if they get out of hand – but I think I can understand what motivates them and can’t help myself siding with them.

Suffice to say we have three brilliant little guard dogs here in the compound.

  1. I have two friend living in Kabul who have told me they have two dogs inside there compound. who ever come over the wall at night, will leave with parts missing. If they make it out.

  2. Rufus and Sasha were two such canine hero’s too. As a local individual approached a building, about to open the door, both dogs became very agitated and attacked. The mans suicide belt went off killing Sasha. Rufus was badly hurt but medics were able to save him and he still stands guard on his “pack” today. Several troops received minor injuries, but owe their lives to these two hero’s.

  3. I believe in our unbreakable bond with our K-9 companions – 15000 years ago or so we made an unwritten, unspoken pact with their ancestors…We would provide warmth, shelter and easy access to food…in return, they would protect us from the things that lurked in the darkness that wanted to harm us or have us for dinner….This pact has been unbroken since and likely is that longest unbroken agreement in the history of man.

    I believe in the following words regarding our K-9 Companions:

    “He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.” – Author Unknown
