Dog Owners Share “Declassified” Pet Photos Online Following Trump’s Tweet About Hero K-9
The animal-loving corners of the Internet – and isn’t that most of it? — collectively swooned upon hearing that ISIS’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was finally cornered with the help of a dog.
The announcement, which was first revealed on President Trump’s Twitter feed, has since gone viral, even though the military K-9’s declassified photo was scrubbed of identifying details, including the animal’s name and breed.
Naturally, we’d all like to thank this four-legged hero by name, but understand that sharing such sensitive information could jeopardize future missions. Even so, Twitter has found a way to honor this very good boy or girl – by giving a massive social media shout out to all of (wo)man’s best friends.
These other dogs aren’t out saving lives, per se, but they are making somebody’s world a better place.

One user acknowledged his pooch isn’t a war hero exactly, but possesses other skills. “DECLASSIFYING this picture of my dog (name also DECLASSIFIED: George),” he tweeted. “He isn’t a war hero, but he does a remarkably good job sleeping like a human sleeps.”
Another Twitter user posted an image of her dogs on “high alert for any terrorists aka squirrels.”

Even Larry the Cat — The British Parliament’s famous “Chief Mouser” — threw in his two cents, inviting other cat owners to join in the fun. “We have declassified a picture of the wonderful cat (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB having a nap,” he wrote above his own photo.
