Sergeant Stubby-

The Wiki read tells just a tiny amount of Stubby's incredible life.

Sergeant Stubby (1916 or 1917 – March 16, 1926), has been called the most decorated war dog of World War I and the only dog to be nominated for rank and then promoted to sergeant through combat, a claim for which there is no documentary evidence, but was recognized in connection with an exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution. He was the official mascot of the 102nd Infantry, assigned to the 26th (Yankee) Division. Stubby served for 18 months and participated in seventeen battles on the Western Front. He saved his regiment from surprise mustard gas attacks, found and comforted the wounded, and once caught a German soldier by the seat of his pants, holding him there until American soldiers found him.

Yes my understanding is that is his handlers new baby. Says something when the guy who knows how he earned that medal has the faith to put him with his child....dogs will never cease to amaze me, almost as much as their vet bills amaze me lol
