Hot Diggity Dog

SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany -- U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Tyler Beddes (left), 86th Security Forces Squadron military working dog handler from Sugar City, Idaho, and U.S. Army Capt. Alisha Gehling, 52nd Medical Group Veterinary Treatment Facility officer in charge from Portland, Ore., simulate field medical treatment on a wounded military working dog during a K-9 competition between MWD units from Spangdahlem and Ramstein Air Bases Aug. 16, 2013. Field medical skills prepare the handlers for war-time scenarios; these skills are an important first step to apply before they can get their wounded dog to a veterinarian.
