Lance Corporal Liam Tasker & Theo


Why no post yesterday? Because not even death could separate this solider and his dog, so how could I?

Lance Corporal Liam Tasker, a dog handler with the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, died of injuries sustained during a firefight with Afghan insurgents back in March.

Theo joined him just hours later after suffering a seizure experts believe was brought about by stress…or was it a broken heart?

The solider and his bomb-sniffing dog were a successful team credited with uncovering 14 hidden bombs and weapons caches, setting a record in Afghanistan. Tasker’s uncle, Billy McCord, said he was worried about being separated from his dog when his tour of duty ended.

“That was preying on his mind, but they are not separated now.”
