Stubby: Canine Hero of the Trenches
#5

That's a good story. It reminded me of this one: the 4th Marines (i.e. 4th Marine Regiment) mascot in China, Corregedore, and captivity - Soochow. There was a great story about him in the WWII magazine not too long ago. He made it all the way through the war in a POW camp where the prisoners (his Marines from 4th Marines) cut into their own meager rations to feed him. How the Japanese didn't end up killing him, I'm not sure. He ended up in San Diego (I believe) after the war but his life was cut relativelty short due to his experiences. Considering all he had been through, it's impressive he lived that long at all!
