If you’re in the Dallas area, you might stop by Veterans Memorial Park in Trophy Club, TX, to see the new sculpture from Susan Norris, called “My Hero, My Friend.”

The brass sculpture was recently featured in the Army Times, and depicts a K9 wearing a Purple Heart, mourning his fallen handler.

Truly a moving piece!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

K-9 Mick Wounded in The Line of Duty

Mick2
From the Murrieta (CA) Police Department’s Facebook Page:

Early [Sunday] morning, K-9 Mick was deployed to assist officers and deputies in taking a carjacking suspect into custody. During the apprehension, K-9 Mick was shot by the suspect and sustained a gunshot wound to his lower jaw and neck. K-9 Mick was quickly brought to the emergency vet, California Veterinary Specialists, and treated for his injuries which were not life threatening. K-9 Mick has already been released and is currently resting at home with his handler. K-9 Mick is expected to make a full recovery and return to active duty soon.

We are very proud of K-9 Mick’s performance. The fact that no officers or deputies sustained any injuries were in large part because of K-9 Mick’s involvement. Mick and his brothers, Buck, Pak and Duke work hard every day to serve and protect the residents of Murrieta and surrounding cities. We are lucky to have them.

Rest up, K-9 Mick! Your city needs you healthy! Thank you for your sacrifice and for taking such good job of your fellow officers.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
