Product description


"No Ordinary Dog is not what you are expecting; this is not a normal war memoir. Yes Will was a Navy SEAL who served at the highest level. Yes, he was there when we killed Osama bin Laden. But this is a story about someone else who was there: Cairo. Cairo was the only dog chosen to be with us that night in Abbottabad, Pakistan, but that is not the only time we served with him. I personally fought next to Cairo in many different theaters of war but also trained with him around the globe. The Operators had meals with him and watched movies with him. We all did. Military Working Dogs have been on the frontlines since the wars began and have saved countless lives. This is Cairo's story." --Robert J. O'Neill, former Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling Author of The Operator

Former U.S. Navy SEAL Chesney offers an inside look at life in the Special Forces and pays tribute to his canine partner Cairo in this heartfelt debut....Dog lovers and fans of military history will be enthralled. --Publishers Weekly

"An outstanding book that captured me through to the end. Read this not just for the dog, or for the SEAL Team stories, but for its truth about the most precious of bonds: that between a man and his best friend." --Mike Thornton, Retired Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor Recipient

No Ordinary Dog demonstrates the healing and redemptive nature of the human-canine bond...Will Chesney and co-writer Joe Layden have done a public service by sharing this story. It's a fast-paced opportunity to understand more about today's military and the role of K9s in keeping our service members safe. It's a heart-felt tribute to the human-canine bond. But most importantly, it encourages people with PTSD and TBI to reach out for support. --Military Working Dog Team Support Association

By every measure, Cairo most certainly deserves to be remembered as the American hero that he was...Cairo--and other military and law enforcement working dogs like him--are heroes of the unwavering loyalty and steadfastness that perhaps only a dog could fully muster. Cairo's story helps us to remember that. --The Havok Journal
