  • Repost: @underdoginternational • IN DOGS WE TRUST • More than 18,000 dogs served during the First World War as scouts, messengers and searchers for wounded troops. Some died alongside their handlers. Others were killed by snipers or landmines. But many survived.
•
The soldiers who cared for them often could not bear to leave them in the battlefield but the cost and logistics to bring them home were too much.
•
So, animal charity Blue Cross, which had hospitals in France and Italy to help 50,000 war horses and 18,000 war dogs, stepped in! They paid to transport hundreds of dogs back to Britain, where they were vaccinated and quarantined before being returned to the veterans they served with.
•
Heartfelt messages were sent from the soldiers to Blue Cross when their dogs arrived:
•
Glasgow, Jan 1920
“I was waiting for her at the station, and as soon as I could, I opened the box to have a look at her, thinking she would be stiff and cramped after coming so far in the box. But as soon as the box opened, she sprang out, and when she smelt me... well, I thought she would have gone mad. She could not seem to believe it was true and kept smelling and kissing us all over. I can assure you, ours was a happy house last night.”
•
Ledbury, Oct 1920
“Just a line to let you know that Rags arrived safely by the train yesterday. My friends have been telling me that she would not remember me after all these months but when she heard my voice on the platform she went almost frantic to get out of the box.”
•
Sunderland, Jan 1920
“Blunt arrived here safely tonight. We went down to the station to meet him. Took him out of his box and put his lead on and brought him home. Poor dog, he was just beside himself with excitement and is still. He knew his master at once and they’ve had a great old time together.”
•
Lest we forget - our four-legged heroes serving alongside those men and women who fought for our freedom.
