Beyond the Call of Duty: Heart-warming stories of canine devotion and braveryby Isabel George
A second collection of incredible and heart-warming canine stories from around the world, from the bestselling author of The Dog That Saved My Life.Animals have accompanied man into battle since war first waged. Since those times, many stories have been told of the bears, camels, cats, dolphins, monkeys, mules, rats and other creatures that have served with the Armed Forces during both world wars and beyond. The four stories in this book represent the devotion and unquestioning loyalty of the canine companion in the darkest days of war.From the stub-tailed Bull Terrier that became a hero of the First World War, and the most decorated dog in history, after his bravery in the trenches of Flanders, to the remarkable loyalty of an Iraqi stray dog who attached himself to British troops in North Port and then patrolled their camp every night, protecting them from being attacked by the vicious packs of dogs living in the desert, each is an incredible tale of wartime bravery as well as an example of inspiring commitment and courage.

The bright blue mare curled up in her bed, thinking recent events over. It was so shocking, and she was not very happy about it. Of course, she couldn't call it anger- just very, very annoyed and confused. <br> Twilight Sparkle had become an alicorn. Twilight had been the mare's rolemodel. In her eyes, Twilight was a goddess. Now she really was. <br> The mare had counted herself lucky- her pink and yellow hair was naturally straight, shaped just like Twilight's. Twilight could have been her twin- they were both unicorns, they had the same mane style and eyeshape. Now Twilight was an alicorn. <br> Dewdrop Dazzle had thought she would be happy for her rolemodel. But she wasn't. Were those wings neccesary? No, Dewdrop told herself, they were not. They had no more merit than a trophy or crown. <br> Dewdrop suddenly was engulfe by feelings of hatred and anger. How DARE Twilight Sparkle ascend to a new rank? Didn't she realize how cool she was already? If somepony dodn't realize that, thy didn't deserve to be cool. Dewdrop screamed in anger. Yet there was nothing she could do about it. Exept one thing. <br> <P> Twilight trotted through Ponyville. There was Dasiy's shop, Quills and Sofas, the Twilight-Haters-Club, the- WHAT? <br> She peeked in and saw sever mares and fillies angrily stompping on Twilight plushies. Twilight stepped back in disbelief. <br> The door swung open and Dewdrop Dazzle steped out. She grinned at the princess. <br> "Newly founded. Wanna join?" <br> "No!" Twilight struggled to remain calm. "That's cruel and bullying behavior, Dewdrop. Why, I oughta-" <br> "Use my pretty pony princess powers and fly away with my pretty wings?" Dewdrop mocked in a high pitched squeal. Her voice dropped to normal as se continued, "We are protesting against something we don't believe in. Good day, princess." She sneered the last word and trotted back inside.
