THAT'S what is WRONG with today's WORLD.
With all the Social Networking, texting, emailing, using debit/credit cards, direct deposit's and online purchases...FEELINGS are becoming Obsolete!!

The TOUCH Contact... by seeing a REAL Person s face WHEN telling them BAD NEWS... Should send the nessager on an Emotional Rollercoaster.. when delivering the message.. IN PERSON..or a REAL Phone call

By emailing then, etc...is so INFORMAL... our Social Standards.. are slowly becoming nonexistent... we are becoming like ROBOTS... Showing No Compassion.. just SAY IT, DO IT...GET IT OVER WITH..and MOVE ALONG!!

Sad...

"I was told via Facebook," Ariell Taylor-Brown told a Columbus, Ohio, NBC affiliate. "It was a girl in his platoon. She wrote to me and told me to call her immediately."

Her husband, Staff Sgt. Christopher L. Brown, 26, was killed by a roadside bomb in Kunar province April 3. He was on his third deployment, assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.

This short-circuiting of the casualty notification process highlights one of the unique pitfalls of social media and instantaneous communication for service members. Although it is impossible to know exactly how many times such breaches have taken place, Army officials say the number is low.

It could have been worse. They could have said:

"Don't worry it is just a dog. We've lost passengers, including infants before, so a dog is no big deal."

Would the dog bother to read the e-mail? Could the dog read the e-mail?...maybe,maybe not?.....I know whenever my dogs read the newspaper it's usually just a quick scan before something seems to annoy them.....frustration at seeing all this stuff written in an unintelligible language....?

Probably also the fault of the baggage handlers (removed dog & ten found nothing of monetary value in the remaining package, ie. the cage).

Corporate response typical... and obviously not good. Wonder if he worked as a temp agency manager in times past?

Have a nice day: Ag

You may HAVE a good point, but IT'S a bit difficult TO follow...YOUR message and UNDERstand what YOU'RE trying TO say...

Btw, what exactly does this have to do WITH a lost dog?

Was probably one of those new fangled "Thinking brain dogs" such as in the Pratchett discworld "ankh morpork" with gaspode the dog acting as the brain for foul ole ron.

Looks like the prototype has a few bugs in it...
