And while the heart-tugging photos of these four-legged heroes are worth a look, so is the high-tech gear that helps them do their job. Last year, the military spent $86,000 on four tactical vests to outfit Navy Seal dogs. The SEALs hired Winnipeg, Canada-based contractor K9 Storm to gear up their four-legged, canine partners, which it has used in battle since World War I.
