Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Although I think the tenor of the title of this thread is less prevalent in the UK compared to it's too often reflected by so many of my fellow Americans, this is a poignant (and for me gut-wrenching) reminder of how shallow such statements:
  2. Don't do this JJ. I have memories of my dogs that are too pain full to bear. Google up a poem called "And give your heart to a dog to tear".

  3. That picture makes me proud to share my home with two black labradors.
  4. Just keep them away from the Chinese or they'll turn them into a large 72 with a side order of 26
  5. Come on to be fair if I took my dog to a funeral he'd probably lay on the floor.

  6. When Lord Byron's dog died, he ordered a tombstone with this inscription:

    "Here lies one who possessed
    Strength without Arrogance
    Beauty without Vanity
    Courage without Cruelty
    All the Virtues of Man
    And none of his Vices."

  10. Think the title of this thread may be erroneous from my experience, my "boys" are certainly not unfeeling. They instinctively know my mood and how to behave in any given situation.

    It's very sad but it doesn't look to me like the dog knew what was happening.
