World War I Hero...Sgt. Stubby

My husband's Staub family sponsors a team each year for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life team.  Their team name is the 'Stubby Staubs.'  Recently, in a blog post by AncientFaces, I read a story about a dog named Stubby, aka Sgt. Stubby, who was a hero during World War I.  

Below is a glimpse of the Sgt. Stubby's obituary, printed by the New York Times in 1926.  Read the full story on AncientFaces.
"The noise and strain that shattered the nerves of many of his comrades did not impair Stubby's spirits. Not because he was unconscious of danger. His angry howl while a battle raged and his mad canter from one part of the lines to another indicated realization." - New York Times Obituary 1926
