These high-tech animals are equipped almost as well as the soldiers they serve with.

"As you may have heard, the Navy SEAL raid that took out Osama bin Laden included a four-legged soldier - aptly described as "the nation's most courageous dog" by the NY Times.

Such a revelation has sparked tremendous interest in the use of war dogs, while also shedding light on the technology these canines use to assist SEAL teams on missions. Dogs for this line of work (the military uses Labrador Retrievers, Belgian Malinois, and German Shepherds) require a significant investment (an estimated $50,000), so it's in the best interests of the owners to equip their canine comrades with the best in safety and high-tech surveillance."

It never ceases to amaze me what the military has got. I wonder if they have dolphins suited up the same way?

Unless people are against the use of dogs in a working environment like that of the police or military already, there really shouldn't be much of a fuss over this. These guys are doing the dogs a favor by replacing or fixing broken teeth - I've seen comparisons of this to Michael Vick's treatment of dogs, which is absolutely absurd.
