Sgt. Gwen Beberg is a Minnesota soldier serving in Iraq who is determined to bring her adopted Iraqi dog, Ratchet, home with her next month. So far, more than 10,000 people have signed an online petition urging the Army to let Beberg keep the canine. In addition, the program coordinator for Operation Baghdad Pups, an organization that helps place Iraqi dogs and cats in U.S. homes, is scheduled to arrive in Baghdad on Wednesday to convince the Army to let Beberg keep Ratchet. Beberg had rescued Ratchet from a burning pile of trash in May; at the moment, the two are separated due to Ratchet's move to a different post in the country. [CNN]
