As the Anaheim Ducks saluted the armed forces on Sunday, the team welcomed a very special dog out to the ice before their game against the Flames for the honorary puck drop.

Corporal Nero, a bomb-sniffing dog, walked out with a puck in his mouth a kind heart in his chest. It was a touching moment.

Finding bombs, having his ears scratched and playing fetch. That’s all this simple dog does. We should aspire to be more like him.

Thanks, Corporal Nero.
