One more Image from Iraq, for good measure.

April 28, 2009
I figured I would give y’all one bonus image since I missed last week. Here you go!

K-dog pulling duty offshore Iraq, sweeps for underwater mines., originally uploaded by lakerae.

K-dog, a bottlenose dolphin, leaps out of the water while training near USS Gunston Hall in the Arabian Gulf during Operation Iraqi Freedom. K-dog is wearing an acoustic tracking device on his fin.

How cool is this? Trained dolphins searching for underwater mines? Way to go Navy. Bonus 500 cool points.

    Dolphins are just too darned cool and really, wouldn’t you love to know who came up with this protocol? Who would think to train Flipper?!

    Whoa… I had a crazy dream last night with a dolphin in it. Seriously seeing this picture freaked me out for a second. Are dolphins haunting me????

    But a cool picture none the less.

    Dolphins are so cool. I just love this picture. Can you imagine a cat doing something useful like that? Never. Can you imagine a cat cam? Never. No, what we’d get would be pictures of bushes, or beds.
