Best Reunion 

Diego and Logan Black

Everybody loves a good dog story. Local Army vet Logan Black spent 2006–07 serving in Fallujah, Iraq, with his trusty bomb-sniffing Labrador retriever, Diego. The two, he says, were inseparable during their time together. Unfortunately, the violence and explosions left both human and pup with post-traumatic stress disorder upon their return to the States. Logan's time in the armed forces ended, but Diego was sent to Lackland Air Force Base in Texas to work with trainers. Black thought that Diego shouldn't be forced to continue serving, and he launched a campaign to pressure the Air Force into discharging Diego. It took awhile for the Air Force to agree to retire the pooch, but in August it did, and Diego came home to Kansas City and was reunited with Black. Upon getting Diego, Black told a Texas TV news station that the 8-year-old Lab, who is sensitive to loud noises, will be treated to a life of luxury. Diego and Black deserve it.
