Awww...


A great story out of North Carolina involving soldiers and dogs.
A U.S. soldier returning to Fayetteville, N.C., from Afghanistan got a surprise welcome from two dogs he saved from starvation while stationed in the war-torn country.

WRAL.com, a FOX affiliate in Raleigh, reports that a charity animal-rescue program run by Internet search engine Dogpile.com reunited Staff Sgt. Daniel Barker with two dogs reportedly rescued by Barker and his fellow soldier, Adam Krause, during their 2008 deployment to Afghanistan.
Way to go, Sarge, and kudos to dogpile.com for their efforts.

Barker? Yes, it's a great story, but Barker?

Adopting local pets is an old tradition... not quite as old as the orders to not adopt pets...
