Fallen Friends Honored at War Dog Memorial

For years it was one of the best-kept secrets in Lyon Township, a humble little pet cemetery off Milford Road. They called it the Happy Hunting Ground when the Elkow family first laid a faithful companion to rest there in the 1930s. Dozens of beloved pets had been somberly buried there since, but as the years and decades passed the humble plots and markers were all but forgotten. Now known as the Michigan War Dog Memorial, the rejuvenated resting grounds for beloved pets will host a special K-9 Veterans Day event Saturday, a tribute to service dogs who have taken “best friend” to life-saving levels.
