Ratchet, The Dog.

October 14, 2008

Heart-tugging story of Army Sgt. Gwen Beberg, trying to bring a rescued dog in Iraq back home to the states with her.  If left in Iraq, the dog faces certain death on the streets.

WASHINGTON (AP) — More than 10,000 people have signed an online petition urging the Army to let an Iraqi puppy come home with a Minnesota soldier, who fears that “Ratchet” could be killed if left behind.

“I just want my puppy home,” Sgt. Gwen Beberg of Minneapolis wrote to her mother in an e-mail Sunday from Iraq, soon after she was separated from the dog following a transfer. “I miss my dog horribly.” Beberg, 28, is scheduled to return to the U.S. next month.

The petition site can be found here.
