Good Doggie, Good Cop

"He didn't need to be like euthanized or anything like that. He just needed somebody to basically love him."

I know I run my share of Bad Cop stories, so how about a good one for a change? This isn’t a new story, but it’s new to me — so here you go:

The Baltimore Humane Society honored Officer Dan for compassionate service this week for his actions in rescuing a Pit bull after responding to a call about a “vicious” dog on the loose this past May.

For those that don’t know his story, Officer Dan arrived on the scene and and saw a Pit bull being chased by kids who were throwing glass bottles at him. He called the dog over to him, and the Pit bull came over, sat next to him and began licking him affectionately. After taking the dog to the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS), he ended up adopting the dog a few days later and named him Bo. The Baltimore Police Department interviewed Officer Dan this week and he recounts his and Bo’s first meeting in detail (see the video below).

Officer Dan told WBALTV News, “I’ve always been a dog-lover. I’ve had dogs all my life, so coming across him was no problem,” Officer Dan said. “He didn’t need to be like euthanized or anything like that. He just needed somebody to basically love him.”

I’ll be back later. There’s something in my eye.

A few years ago at an art show in Farmington, Mich., I ran across a lady walking a magnificent looking brindled Pit Bull who was really well mannered.
I asked her for particulars and she told me her hubby was a fireman in Detroit and spotted this dog sitting in the middle of a five lane roadway in winter. No collar, no license, and really skinny.
He called the puppy and it came right over to him. It was love at first sight for them, and I could/can only be envious of the 3 of them.
He laid down on my feet while I was talking to her and I just about lost it.
Who can do that kinda' stuff and just kick loose living, breathing love ?
