Happy 6th Birthday to Lager!!
May 13, 2018
For his special day, Lager got to do what he loves best: dock dive and swim (with the dock and lake all to himself!)!
Lager enjoyed his special birthday meals:
Breakfast: pancakes/scrambled eggs/bacon/blueberries
Dinner: filet mignon/sweet potatoes/green beans/carrots/banana
Dessert: Carob cake!!
We stopped at Crossings Vineyard after visiting a War Dog Memorial with Lager to celebrate Veterans Day.
The vineyard was situated on beautiful grounds, and had a really neat tasting room!
While we were in Knoxville for the DockDogs World Championship
, we were fortunate enough to have enough time to take Lager to visit this wonderful War Dog Memorial.
This noble Doberman Pinscher represents hundreds of heroic war dogs that served in the United States Marine Corps during World War II.
This Memorial is an exact replica of the official memorial in Guam, was donated to the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine by Dr. Maurice Acree July 17, 1998.
It honors not only the war dogs, but symbolizes the special connection people share with dogs.
We will continue to get Lager to every War Dog Memorial we can throughout his retirement years with us. Click below to see the other Memorials Lager has already visited.

To celebrate Veteran’s Day, we took Lager, our retired Explosives Detection Canine, to the War Dog Memorial in Bristol Township, PA.
We thought it may be a good idea to continue to give Lager’s nose a work out. We signed him up for K9 Nose Work Class at Wonder Dogs, which is where we had taken both Cello and Hooch for their puppy training. Lager LOVED it, and although he was being taught to identify a completely new scent, he picked right up on this game, and is having a blast!
Since Lager has joined our family, we have tried to keep his nose busy so that he can still feel like he is doing his job. Here is Lager finding Hydrogen Peroxide in our home. Hydrogen Peroxide is just one of the 30-plus explosives ingredients Lager is trained to identify.
Lager was featured in South Jersey Magazine!
