I don’t know the story here, so I’m just choosing to join the people in the background laughing…

    and even with all that padding, those dogs can still mess you up. I was soar for days and bruised for weeks.

    Lol! the look or sheer terror is priceless.

    I watched a show called “Who wants to be a superhero” where the contestants had to wear protective padding and go into a yard with two trained attack dogs, the were shepherds. The release word was “uncle” lol. Anyway, even the big hulking guy who could carry both dogs gave up, and the thin girl was dragged around the yard for almost an hour before she gave up. I don’t doubt that having a snarling dog attack you is a truly terrifying situation.

    Really? You all find this funny? To me it looks like the guy who’s afraid of dogs getting to be an incentive in training dogs to attack people. It looks like yet another military hazing or bullying case. Shame on you. This is like laughing at a car accident.

      I’m actually in this picture…Trust me, the photo isn’t as it seems. We were part of a photo, journalist and broadcast team, and we went to one of the air bases to cover the MWD team there. They were excited for the coverage and offered to let us “catch” a K9. The guy you see in the photo was my buddy…my wingman. And the look of terror you see is really just his awesome personality shining through. This day was a lot of fun considering our environment…
