This Ministry of Defence photo, made available on October 25, 2012, shows Lance Corporal Liam Tasker and his Springer spaniel mix Theo. Theo, the bomb-sniffing army dog who died in Afghanistan on the day his handler was killed, has been honored with Britain's highest award for animal bravery. Springer spaniel mix Theo was posthumously awarded the Dickin Medal at a ceremony in London.
