Two officers are being investigated by the U.S. Army for wearing their military uniforms along with dog masks, while depicting sexual acts in photos they posted online.
According to USA Today, two male soldiers posted a series of sexually explicit photos last week of themselves in either full or partial uniform, while wearing dog masks and other bondage fetish gear.
Some of the images reportedly depicted submissive sexual poses, and in at least one shot a soldier was photographed at an airfield wearing the dog mask and combat fatigues.

The soldiers, who go by the Twitter handles Pup Ravage and Guy Foxer, are stationed in Hawaii, and some of the photos appear to have been taken at a gym located on one of the six military bases on the islands.
Last Friday, a Twitter account identified masked soldiers as retired Col. Brian T. Donnelly and CTP Dayton Tenney.
According to Nova Campaigns, Donnelly posted a photo of himself in full uniform wearing a black and brown mask that resembled a Doberman Pinscher, while standing in front of the American flag.
“Well, after nearly three decades in uniform, this ‘ol Armydawk is finally done,” Donnelly wrote.
“As of today, he’s COL Ravage, US Army, Retired. It’s been a great run!” He added along with a series of hashtags that included #ArmyPup, #ProudPup, and #ServiceDog.
In another post, Tenney is wearing a dog mask with his full uniform, as he announced that he had completed six months training at a base in South Carolina.
“This puppy, however, graduated with honors and was recognized as one of the Top Dawgs in class,” he tweeted on Oct. 27.
Nova Campaigns reported that Donnelly and Tenney were in an “#AlphaPup [and] #BetaPup” sexual relationship while stationed at Joint Base Peal Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii.
Conservative Twitter went nuts over the photos, as many were taken on military bases and occurred while the officers were in uniform.
“Are there no rules in the military anymore?” One former soldier questioned.
“I got in trouble for not having a hat on outdoors in uniform. If I had a pup mask on I would have been dishonorable discharged.”
“When he puts on that uniform he represents the USA… all of us,” someone added. “What a disgrace.”
“As a twenty five year Veteran…This makes me sick to have the uniform and the rank disgraced,” one veteran wrote. “We’re Doomed America… So Doomed.”
“I was hoping this stuff to be faked, but if the results of @NoVA_Campaigns is true, it’s disgraceful,: another noted.
“Col. Should be brought back active, and have the UCMJ come his way.”
Donnelly’s retirement could be in serious jeopardy, with the Monday announcement of a military investigation into the officers.
Even though the colonel is retired, he could be recalled to active duty and retired at a lower rank, or even court-martialed.
Since Tenney is still enlisted, he can be slapped with an Article 133 for disgracing the military with his conduct, which can result in “dismissal from the force, forfeiture of all his allowances and pay, and confinement.”
“U.S. Army Pacific is aware of content found on social media reflecting soldiers’ activities while wearing uniforms,” an Army spokesperson said. “The incident is currently under investigation.”
“All U.S. Army soldiers are expected to uphold high standards of personal conduct and to avoid discrediting the service and the uniform, both in person and across social media,” the Army said in a statement.
Another government pup-fetishist is also in serious legal trouble this week. Former Department of Energy deputy secretary Sam Brinton appeared before a Las Vegas judge on Wednesday for allegedly stealing luxury luggage from Harry Reid International Airport over the summer.
Brinton, 35, who often dresses in women’s clothing, was charged with felony grand larceny for reportedly lifting a woman’s suitcase full of $3,670 worth of clothes, jewelry, and makeup.
The nonbinary former government official was fired from the DOE on Monday, after being charged with their second luggage theft.
Brinton was slapped with felony theft for allegedly swiping a Vera Bradley suitcase with contents valued at $2,325, from Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport on Sept. 16.
The drag queen was charged with the Las Vegas luggage theft in early December, after the national publicity from the first incident caused investigators to reopen their case when they recognized Brinton in the media.
A Las Vegas judge told Brinton to “stay out of trouble” as a condition of their $15,000 bail.
Both charges carry a maximum fine of $10,000 each, and combined jail time of up to 15 years.
