“The guard dog was incorruptible; the police dog dependable; the messenger dog reliable. The human watchman might be bought, not so the dog. The soldier sentinel might fall asleep, never the dog. The battlefield runner might fail … but not the dog, to his last breath, would follow the line of duty.” -Ernest Harold Baynes, Animal Heroes of the Great War
