Sqad - /Are you saying that if there had to be a fatality during the anti-terrorist operation, you would have preferred it to have been a human tragedy rather than a canine one? // What a bizarre conclusion! I am sure that bunkmoreland would prefer that no-one had died - human or canine!

Please translate.
The more I know men, the more I love my dog (I think)
Very true .
The more I know of men
The more I love my dog. I think. I agree
Thank you danny. I 100% agree. RIP lovely Diesel x
\\\\Plus je connais les hommes
Plus jaime mon chein! \\\

What has that go to do with the dog being killed in the line of duty?
I also agree although i don't really see the connection of the saying with Diesel specifically.
I have to say if we're going to post in French it should be correct so Plus J'aime mon chien
I have read you OP again and again and i am still not quite sure of it's significance.

Are you saying that if there had to be a fatality during the anti-terrorist operation, you would have preferred it to have been a human tragedy rather than a canine one?

A-H.....I said that "if there HAD to be " a fatality.

\\\\I am sure that bunkmoreland would prefer that no-one had died - human or canine!\\\

I am sure that all ABers would agree.
The more I read on the internet, the more I realise how sheeplike people can be.
The dog that died had no choice, how it can be described as a 'hero' beats me. Its very sad that an animal died, but to call it a hero is like calling every race horse that dies while racing as a 'hero'.
and the quote should be

Plus je connais des gens, plus je l'aime mon chien. "
Retrochic. the dog has two medals from previous deeds of heroism.
The dog was a working dog. My father was a police dog trainer/handler. He had an exceptional championship winning police dog. He helped capture Eoka terrorists who were armed in Cyprus. He wasn't a fluffy little dog that did parlour tricks.
He probably saved my father's life and certainly some men of 45 R.M. Commando with which they served. My father was bought up with lurchers and retrievers and gun dogs all through his childhood.
He would not give a dog houseroom unless it worked for its keep.
He knew that Joe could be gunned down. I am sure I saw a tear in his eye when it ws time to have him put down though.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The temporary Avatar of mine shows my father with Police dog Joe on the road patrol to Yerakies, Cyprus whilst serving with 45 R.M. Commando in 1956. The dog was accredited with many armed terrorist arrests during his tour.
My father's reward.The distinction of being awarded,as a civilian, a Military General Service Medal. Very rare for that to be given. There were other British police dog handlers in Cyprus as well.
The dog's reward: 6 months quarantine soon as his paws touched terra firma at Manston. That was wuff. :-(
A heroine in my eyes Diesel, always.
Thanks for sharing that, retro... you must be very proud of your Dad (and dog!)
I've often wondered why dogs are banned from shops/cafes etc when grotty, nose-picking, noisy etc., etc. children are allowed in. You know where you are with a dog (struggling with our little 'rescue' one, I admit - but he's a lovely little chap with problems).

I'd go along with the sound-bite!
Question Author
I came across the saying in the 80s... It just seemed relevant at this time " A play on "mankind can do bad things etc....but animals are good" .Shocked that it was inferred I was suggesting a human "tragedy" was preferable :-(
Thank you for the positive replies on here x and to andy in particular for standing up for my innocent thread x
Russian Defence Minister has donated a GSD puppy to the French to repIace DieseI. They are aII brave and wouId Iay down their Iives for their handIers - even my big woossy pet GSD wouId protect me if he needed to I have no doubt.
