So, we crips sometimes get to get helper dogs to help us do just about anything. Some dogs are trained to be companion dogs for people with panic attacks and epilepsy.
Police’ve been had the K-9 unit as part of the force since the 14th century. A partner and his dog are literally together from puppyhood 24/7. After the dog retires, the cop continues caring for him/her.
That’s why this is so heartbreaking to watch:
Of course, the ideal scenario’s for both to come home at shift’s end. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case like what happened Christmas Eve in FL.
What’s sad is, like the officer knows there might be a chance he might not be coming home, the K-9 doesn’t…he just knows he’s doing his job.
Talk about man’s best friend.
Rest in peace, Cigo, you did your job well.
Be good to each other.
