This will wrap it up on a month of military working dogs, or MWD’s. Some people think this stands for war dogs, even though that could be an appropriate term. Dogs have been used in war as far back as the 7th century BC. where a war dog named Lethargos was buried with his master Hippaemon. The epitaph also records his horse and spearman were buried along with him. Hippaemon was a Magnesian horseman who was killed in a battle with the Ephesians in the mid 7th century. They would release the dogs against the enemy, then the spearmen, followed by a cavalry charge.
