RIP Razz

Razz, a goregous black labrador, had a resume that many people would envy.

He was a veteran of the 2002 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and the 2006 Commonwealth Games, both in Australia, among other major events.
The former customs dog then went on to greater things as an explosive-detection dog with Australian troops in Afghanistan.
When a vehicle with three diggers in it was hit by a roadside bomb in Oruzgan Province last week, Razz was sent in.
Razz and his handler encountered a second bomb. He was killed and his handler suffered minor injuries.

He was the second Aussie explosive-detection dog killed in Afghanistan this month.
