Partners of a different breed
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Caitlin Bourque, 325th Security Forces Squadron military working dog handler, receives instruction on first-aid for her dog during a patrol exercise at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla., Jan. 25, 2018. Handlers view their dogs as their partner and are responsible for everything from basic feeding and exercise, to providing the dog with medical attention if it were ever harmed in combat. This unique relationship causes handler and dog to be in tune with one another and enhances their effectiveness. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Cody R. Miller/ Released)
