    DefaultChampion-bred retriever dies saving Marines

    Saw this article from the Marine Corps Times about Cole, a black lab who died hunting IEDs in Afghanistan. Thought you all might want to see it.

    That's a lot of dogs in your life, Deidra. And, yes, they have a way of looking out for us.

    Nice story. I hope the pit bull/lab/rottweiler mix at least got his name in the paper (lol).
