Photos: Man's best bomb-sniffing friend

Capitol intern Jake Kempton pats Diego, a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois bomb-sniffing dog, at the Capitol on Monday. Diego's trainer, Utah Highway Patrol trooper Dan Huber, stands nearby. Bomb-detecting dogs are increasingly becoming a force in security for the U.S. and abroad. Dogs were used in Sunday's Super Bowl, and many have been sent to Iraq due to bombings that have occurred during the conflict there.
