'ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN' by Stasia Grishina at ISSMAG, Moscow

We don't need dogs anymore. The dog is man's friend, that’s ridiculous. Man has no friends. Dogs have fangs, speed, stamina, things that humans don't have. Warrior dogs, guard dogs, they became living canines. They've been a living tool, seen a lot of war and blood. But now, we don't need them anymore: there is no hunger, there is no war, and there is nothing and no one to guard anymore. They "sacrificed" their lives to save people, dying under the armored fist of the Wehrmacht with explosives on their side. They were called heroes. What kind of heroes were they? They were just taught, they were just ordered, but nothing was explained to them. The dogs completed their mission on human earth. They are no longer feared, they are no longer eaten. They are no longer dog warriors. This is the era of cows. They are bigger, there are more of them, they are not pitied. It's time to say goodbye to dog-warriors. Cut off all their heads and hang them on a saddled cow! That they may remember, their era is gone! And let them swear an oath of allegiance, a promise to live apart from the human race!
