Have you seen this dog?

  How many of you received this picture by e-mail, with an accompanying story about how Brutus won the Congressional Medal of Honor from his heroic activities in Iraq?  I have received it several times, and almost posted it, but decided to check it out on Snopes.com first.

According to Snopes, the dog pictured above is Spike, a retired police dog from Scottsdale, Arizona.  Spike is a Belgian Malinois, not a Boxer/Bull Mastiff mix, as the e-mail asserts.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
