    ''She's a tough little bugger, absolutely as tough as nails. For a dog to be missing for so long to be found ... everyone is stoked.''

    Great!

    But, it is sad to read that they still use Labradors (or any other type of dog) in warfare. Theyve also used Labradors in the Vietnam war, and no one of those Labradors ever returned home!
