Amazing dog-Brutus

This dog is Brutus, a military K9 at McChord. He's huge - part Boxer and part British Bull Mastiff and tops the scales at 200 lbs.

Brutus is running towards his trainer because he knows the trainer has some Milk Bone treats, so he's slobbering away!

Brutus was the recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor two years back from his tour in Iraq. His handler and four other soldiers were taken hostage by insurgents. Brutus and his handler communicate by sign language and he gave Brutus the signal that meant 'go away but come back and find me'.

amazing-dog-brutus
The Iraqis paid no attention to Brutus. He came back later and quietly tore the throat out of one guard at one door and another guard at another door. He then jumped against one of the doors repeatedly (the guys were being held in an old warehouse) until it opened. He went in and untied his handler and they all escaped. He's the first K9 to receive this honor. If he knows you're ok, he's a big old lug and wants to sit in your lap. Enjoys the company of cats.

Strange facts-Pole dancing Mom and daughter

A mother who injected her teen daughter with Botox is now teaching her seven-year-old to pole dance. Sarah Burge — who owns a sex club where pole dancers perform — claims daughter Poppy's dancing is no different than playing on a climbing frame. But parenting experts and child abuse campaigners warned she is sexualizing Poppy far too young.

“We spend hours trying out poses and positions and dancing to our favorite music. Poppy wants to be like pop star Miley Cyrus, who also dances on a pole.

strange-facts-pole-dancing-mom-and-daughter“There is no harm in a child having dreams. I'd rather her be healthy and ambitious than sitting in front of the TV all day getting fat like most children.” Sarah, from Cambridge, accepted that people would be shocked at her teaching a seven-year-old provocative dance moves, but she added, “I could not care less what people think about me."

Sarah also claims she was preparing Poppy for the day when she inherits her swinger's club, Madame Pink.
