From the Brimfield PD Facebook page (if you haven’t “liked” it yet, you should!): About eight years ago, our department was very fortunate to welcome K-9 Joker into our ranks. Today is K-9 Joker’s birthday! He is now retired and at home, likely barking at squirrels and joggers.
K-9 Joker served the Brimfield Police Department for seven years, assigned to (now) Captain Adkins. Joker had an awesome nose and excelled at finding drugs, tracking and evidence recovery. He once tracked a drunken driver over pavement, through woods and swamp and directly to the back door of the fella’s house. He is a hoot to be around and had one heck of a work ethic. He was responsible for removing countless drugs from the streets.
He is now enjoying retirement and still lives with his police partner, Captain Adkins. Captain Adkins is not retired, much to his regret when subjected to my daily shenanigans.
Happy Birthday to K-9 Joker. We miss working with you. I truly miss the slobber all over my desk, phone, computer, pants, boots and chairs…..
Although my stash of stuffed animals is much safer now…..Chief Oliver.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
