This past year, my third year at Virginia Tech, proved to be my first year full-time in the history department. It was challenging to juggle my assistantship positions, several courses, my on-campus job, and at times exhausting job search but I have had an overwhelmingly fulfilling year. Though often plagued with stress and anxiety, I […]
I thought I would dedicate this week’s post to my experiences writing my non-thesis research paper and taking the research methods course simultaneously. I will admit that at first it seemed I would not benefit from the class and I was a bit wary of having to write my paper while taking the course. It […]
I thought I would dedicate a post to my overall writing and researching reflections including my thoughts on how I may use my experiences to teach my future students in my own classroom. Overall, as I have mentioned in other posts, the researching and writing process had its ups and downs for me. I have […]
The final version of my research paper is due on Wednesday and I am almost finished! I am currently proofreading and making minor edits, winding the process down. For this last set of edits, I had to re-work my introduction again, much to my chagrin at first. I realized, however, after making said edits that […]
While attending the Living with Animals Conference at Eastern Kentucky University last month, I was able to attend a variety of talks, many of which were relevant to my research (thankfully!) I thought I would write about one here and give my opinion concerning its effectiveness (as a presentation and the information provided). This talk, by a visiting […]
As I did not have a thesis proposal draft to submit and reflect upon, I thought I would rather reflect upon the draft process for my research project now due in less than two weeks (!!). The analogy perhaps most appropriate to describe this past semester of researching and writing is that of a roller coaster: […]
While at the Living with Animals Conference a few weeks ago, I attended a talk concerning dog training techniques. One dog trainer discussed was a man named Konrad Most, a police commissioner for the Royal Prussian police. He headed efforts in the early 1900s to train dogs for police work. Ultimately, his techniques were applied to military […]

I am fascinated by the amount of research that you have so far on this very intriguing topic. If I am not mistaken, wasn’t Stubby part of the 26th Infantry Division? Maybe not, but I seem to recall reading about him somewhere. I think that there is reference to him in a diary from a soldier in the 26th, if not there, there is another reference to a dog in the 26th Infantry Division in the Great War. Have you considered contacting the National War Dogs Memorial site? There is a fairly new museum and memorial site, I believe that it is located in Texas. I am sending a link to a website that might be of some help. Thanks for a great post, I am really excited to read the final paper.

Stubby was part of the 26th Infantry Division! I will definitely check into that diary, I have been looking for soldiers’ accounts concerning animals so that will be tremendously helpful, thank you! I also have not heard of the National War Dogs Memorial site but I will definitely look into that as well, thank you for the link!
