I was reading, in my morning copy of 24H > News Vancouver on my way to work, that a 2 year old police dog named Bo was killed yesterday morning in a car accident on his way to a call with his handler. All those involved in the accident were unharmed, except Bo, he was killed on impact.
I just wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of the important role that these canine heroes play in our lives and that without them, who would be there to rescue the child trapped under debris? Who would be there to protect us against bomb threats and drug trafficking? Who would be there to lick your feet in the morning because you refuse to hear your alarm clock going off? Who would be there?
This is tragic loss, one that didn't have to happen. So the next time you are cruising along and don't pull over when you seen a police car, ambulance or fire truck with their sirens/lights going, I want you to remember this story.
Think of the lives that could be saved, if we all slowed down.
