    I always wonder what happened to these mascots when soldiers move on, one way or another. Dogs are such excellent faithful companions - I hope they weren't left behind and abandoned.

    I'll go hug my dog now.

    And once again Wojtek. Rumor is he was taught to drive (though briefly) but had difficulty with clutch and shifter. Here he is backing up a FWD HAR supply truck with the help of a transport specialist at a munitions supply dump in Italy prior to the final assault on Ancona
