Those of you who’ve been following this blog for awhile will remember Jethro, a Canton police department K-9 officer who was killed in the line of duty. His memorial stone has now been placed at the cemetery where all local K-9 officers are laid to rest. Very handsome sculpture of a very handsome dog. (The PK9A logo is for Police K-9 Association, which is instrumental in training and supporting K-9 Officers and their handlers in Ohio.)
Incidentally, I ran into Officer Ryan Davis the other day with his new K-9 partner, Tuko. Unfortunately, Tuko isn’t nearly as social as Jethro was, so I was unable to play with him, but he’s doing a great job learning his new duties.
And, every dog on the force is now outfitted in a bullet-proof, stab-resistant vest, courtesy of the funds raised after Jethro’s death.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
