    Sad. One would think that given their natural talents, the dogs would be treated better behind the scenes – more like what the departments tell the public, which are lies.

    Way to go. I wish they shared his name. Maybe on their fb page. I hope he gets more than a pat on the head. Pot is legal in several states, although I don’t think this mode of travel is ok. When I saw this on the afternoon news, I had to laugh at the dog posed in the middle of the haul. 🙂

    K9 officers deserve the same credit as human officers – they are an integral part of any police department and need to be treated as such – they are the first sent into dangerous situations and confront vicious criminals, yet some do not even have vests which are so important for protection. ALL K9 officers deserve the same protection as human officers – this dog did a great service and should be treated like the hero he is.

    People are committing these barbaric and violent crimes are on drugs. They are ruining our kids and I heard one report where it was almost impossible for people to come up clean on drug tests for a job.
