Miky the Dog

In my obsession with dogs, I ran across this unusual story about a German shepherd named Miky in Montana.  It is a touching collaboration of a dog from Israel, a Lubavitch rabbi, and the police force in Helena, Montana.

Miky was raised in Israel to be a bomb-sniffing dog.  He was then surplused and ended up in the police department in Montana.  He was a smart dog, but he had been trained in Hebrew.  It was only through Rabbi Chaim Bruk that the police in Helena learned how to issue commands to their new canine assistant.

You can just see the intelligence in that face!

You're right, I can see the intelligence in his face. I love dogs! A friend of mine is publishing a series of iBooks with her dog (and my dog Cal is appearing as well). Cal even has a page on the website!

Our neighbor, Mike, walks his two German Shepherds and one pit bull three, four, sometimes five times a day. Just like this fella, the shepherds are very alert and intelligent looking (maybe more than Mike).
