Explore Dog Aboard, Aboard Air and more!

In last week's post I sent a dispatch from Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Texas where I attended the DoD's K-9 Trials -- a dog team competition that hadn't been hosted there since 9/11. The competition itself spanned three long days. Each day every team had to complete a series of new tasks, which stretched from detaining unruly and aggressive "suspects" they encountered on a patrol, to multiple cordon searches for explosives (or for the narcotics dogs, drugs).

Jacques Cousteau and his first wife, Simone Cousteau, aboard their boat, Calypso. It's amazing to think of the wonderful and mysterious things that his dachshunds, which included red smooths 'Bulle' and 'Scaphandrier,' must have experienced in their travels with their beloved human. This photo is from 1959.
