TRANSIT CENTER AT MANAS, Kyrgyzstan -- He eats, he sleeps, he plays, and sometimes he works, but it's not really work. It's a dog's life.
Arek is a military working dog who's seen it all and still lives to tear apart squeaky toys. And just like some military service members, one of the only things he's really scared of is ... mice.
"He doesn't really like gunshots or explosions either," admitted his handler, Staff Sgt. Patrick Lau, who's deployed with Arek from Hill Air Force Base.
