"Hello Mrs. Nunley...Good news! I got to keep Grace...lol. We arrived in the states last week, where it was confirmed, Grace was mine! Well, she is here with me now, laying on the floor enjoying life. My wife and kids are in love with her, they are spoiling her rotten. I want to thank you for all the hard work, time and effort, you put into securing donations for our K-9 teams. Thanks again, for making it a bearable year..."

Say a prayer for
Just recently, the vet has found a cancerous tumor in Gabes leg and he goes to surgery on the 1st of April . . . we're all praying for Gabe after all he has done for our soldiers and our country.
Chuck was a dog handler in the army and Gabe was his MWD. In fact he re-enlisted twice in order to be able to stay with Gabe. When he came back to TX Gabe wouldn't work for anyone else so they retired him and Chuck was able to adopt him. He is a beautiful and awesome dog. He is very highly decorated. Chuck is still in the Army.
Notes from Starline . . .
We are now able to supply ear protection
June was very busy...
We've also found out, that as the main military forces are moving out of Iraq, more MWD teams are being sent in to replace them. Since these teams are especially adept at explosive detection, it's become more critical to find them with less personnel to police areas in general. So our efforts to help keep them more effective and protected as we can is still as important as well.
Here is an overview of kennels and facilities that we've been able to make contact with throughout the past year and provide the gear requested. We have expanded to active kennels in other countries as there is great need there also. As it turns out many of the Military Working Dogs in Iraq are now being sent over to Afghanistan and the Kaiserslautern Kennel in Germany is a main deployment point for them all over Europe and the Middle East. Many of these kennels in the list below have had handlers and MWDs change over and so we've supplied the new incoming teams as well. So even though the kennel is mentioned by name only once, the total number of MWDs supplied is current.
