mo is home. now we just have to get

ADAM home! a while ago i posted a story about a connecticut soldier deployed in afghanistan. he found a puppy and wanted to bring it home. it took a LOT of red tape and a great deal of money (it would have been cheaper to fly A COUPLE of HUMANS home) to get mo home. he's HERE thanks to the generosity of people. now we just have to get his human companion adam home.

Dog Brought From Afghanistan To New Home In State
Fox CT
One Lucky Dog

Mo is adjusting to the good life in Clinton after being rescued from
Afghanistan. The 6-month-old mutt traveled over 48 hours and across nine time zones to his new Connecticut home with Brian Wakefield. Brian's brother Adam took the stray in, but the Army ordered him to get rid of the dog.

So Adam and his family started Operation "SendMoHome;" a website that raised the $3,500 needed to quarantine and vaccinate Mo, and then fly him to Connecticut. Donations flooded in and the money was raised in less than 24 hours. Brian picked up Mo Tuesday at JFK International Airport...............

Brian Wakefield shares a quiet moment with his brother's dog Mo. Mo is a stray dog from Afghanistan that was adopted by Brian's brother Adam, who is stationed in the war torn country. It took $3500 and 48 hours for Mo to make it to the United States.
