Good Dog

One of the occupants of my current reading list is a book called Police Heroes. True-life stories of real officers and their canine companions in extraordinary and dangerous situations. Inspirational, and sometimes heart-wrenching tales of unsurpassed bravery, while protecting the lives of innocent people. I am thoroughly enjoying it.

At lunch yesterday, in the local Japanese restaurant, I read the chapter commending three K-9 companions who put themselves in grave, and sometimes fatal, danger to protect their human handlers and preserve the lives of those in danger.

Including the one about K-9 Cero who, though shot in the heart by a crazed suspect, still crawled to his officer's side for one last "Good dog."

Thankfully, I was sitting facing the window at the time I read that story.

The other patrons didn't need to see my tears.
