The guard dog sentry/alarm systems in war torn Vietnam got to be such a problem that it prompted the U.S. Navy to incorporate a special version of the S&W Model 39 pistol dubbed the "Hush Puppy". A modified version of the Model 39 with a wider grip frame to accommodate a 14-round magazine was used by Naval Special Warfare units during the Vietnam War.[3] It was issued to officers-in-charge (OICs) of MST-2 detachments as their sidearm. SEAL Teams used either the Model 39 without modification or a modified version, the Mk 22 Mod 0, which was called the "hush puppy".[3] The modified pistol had a suppressor with a slide lock (which kept the slide from moving backwards upon firing, thereby decreasing produced noise) The Mk 22 Mod 0 had raised iron sights, to provide easier sighting over a bulky suppressor. The gun's purpose was to eliminate sentry dogs or guards without alarming the main target.[1][2]
Now the honest version of these WIKI-tales is the indigenous Bar-headed goose. But Hush-Goose just isn't as catchy as "Hush-Puppy", so the legend lives on.

Purposely used WIKI, deeper research shall add credence to implications.
Anyone wish to purchase a Model 39 Hush Puppy from US Navy inventory?

That would be the original Wonder Nine, the Model 59.

Perhaps I didn't stress the highlights?

8 or 14 round capacity in a pistol designed not to cycle, what's the difference?

Best guard dogs during Vietnam turn out to be geese.

Isn't it amazing how practical application overshadows common knowledge? High capacity pistols & large awe inspiring canines should have ruled the Battlefield.

I always say that I'll never get another dog...that their passing is always such a loss.

Then after a while, I get a whiff of puppy breath and I'm sucked right back in.

It often seems the best way to fill that void is to get another puppy to help take your mind off the one you lost. Though good dogs are never "replaced," they all take a place in our hearts.
