As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Meet the White House Canine Heroes

Here they are, the Secret Service agents who take down White House intruders and protect your president, regardless of Party.

The Secret Service tweeted out their photos Thursday.

I see them around the grounds. Definitely two of my favorite White House employees.

  1. They look fighting lean. I can’t help comparing these dogs with the photos of slain Canadian Crillo’s dogs who are looking sadly under the fence waiting for their friend who will never return.

  2. Keith Thanks for putting the two heros pictures on this site.
    They caught the bad guy, and were than punched and kicked like a sack of potatoes, and they are sitting there strong, dedicated, and ready to go back to work.
    By the way I had to look up Et Tu. :)

    • HOW SAD.



  3. These beautiful animals did what they are trained to do, and did it well.
    Working dogs are one of MotherNature’s marvels, and we are lucky to have them among us.

  4. Thanks Keith, excellent post.
    Seeing this, it reminded me of an article I read some time ago about the military working dogs in Iraq and Afghanistan that are sometimes left behind when their handlers are sent back to the states.
    Few relationships can be compared to the loyalty of a dog to it’s master.
    It must be devastating for both the handler and the dog. They should be sent back here together.

    Just FYI,….these dogs were trained at Lackland AFB at one time.
    I’m not sure if that is still true.

  5. “I talk to him when I’m lonesome like; and I’m sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands;
    Then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat.
    For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that.”

    • Remember the Twilight Zone episode where an old man & his dog go coon hunting after dinner? They both die and are walking a road to heaven, he chooses to pass by the man who wouldn’t let his dog enter with him because that is not the real heaven ‘if my dog can’t come too’.

    • “If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you.
      This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”
      ― Mark Twain

  7. …….at least two at the Whitehouse are trained, skilled and now very experienced at their job! Love these dogs and these pictures. Thanks, Keith.

  8. Gorgeous dogs! Belgian Malinois are used extensively in security and police work now. Sadly, German Shepherds are not used as much as in the past, due to over breeding, and the way their crippled back legs have ruined them for serious work. Breeders who believe they know more than Nature have a lot to answer for.

  9. These are indeed beautiful dogs but it worries me that the perpetrator was able to hurt them by punching and kicking them. Now I am worried they are trained as politically correct dogs so they only bark and lick the bad guys instead of putting some of those excellent teeth into them. The murder of Nathan Cirillo disturbed me deeply, but when I saw the video of his two dogs peering so mournfully out from under the wooden gate, my “disturbed” turned to inmittigated hatred for the humanoid animals who are here to kill us.
