The benefits of Patreon support: I have a Patreon supporter that asked for likenesses of some household pets to be represented in the comic– so here we have two Military Working Dogs representing “Sadie” and “Butter”! Butter is a brindle-coated Plott Hound mix and Sadie is a Labrador/ German Shepherd / Staffordshire Terrier / Akita mix. Here are the dogs in question:
They are portrayed as being part of the 220th Military Police (MP) Brigade, which was in Iraq at the time, although they were getting ready to rotate out. We actually did have an MP unit next door to us, but I don’t recall which unit it was or if they had dogs. I just decided to use the 220th because, well, why not?
In a few days, we’ll meet one of the dog handlers, and the dogs will be featured in future episodes from time to time, and may even have a few episodes devoted solely to how they while away their days in the kennel at Camp Victory.
