Nice dog, E5 - friend of mine has an Akita, it stands nearly a metre tall, is built like a brick sh1t-house and answers to 'Bear'.

I have two Samoyeds, brother and sister - would put up a photo but don't know how to.

The pup's looking well, Artist.

A truly sad loss, to his friends, family and his nation.

The greatest gift, that a man should lay down his life for his friends.

Given the need for trained soldiers, if you manage to hack it in 4 Para then it should be easy enough to get into a Reg unit for a tour. Back door but if it works then fine.
