Heroic Send Off for Police Dog

This may seem a little macabre, but I saw this on CTV and thought it appropriate to highlight. There are many animals that 'work for a living' the save lives, the help the blind, they server and protect, they entertain, and many other assorted jobs. In the case of police dogs, whose jobs put them in harms way, we often take for granted that the animal is not only keeping the peace, but replacing a human officer in a dangerous situation. They put their lives on the line, and when one of them falls in the line of duty, it is very easy for the animals colleagues to transpose themselves into their shoes (paws) and realize that it could have easily been them that died. So for the very reason we honour our fallen human officers, it is important to honour our animal ones.

So Nitro, Good Boy!
