We're so proud of our youngest's girlfriend, who has the enviable
summer internship at our local police department. It's always
fascinating to see what she's been up to, on any given week.
Last night, she filled us in on her work with training the K9 crew.
Here she is in the bite suit, working with Barrie, a German Shepherd
from the Netherlands, and officer Eric Cochran. Barrie's main duties
include building and area searches, evidence location, criminal
apprehension and narcotic detection.
At one point, she had to run, with Barrie in pursuit. She didn't hear
anything, so turned to look. Barrie was airborne, landing on
her back to bring her down. She said it was a lot of fun. I love dogs,
but heavens to murgatroyd! I don't know about you, but I'd have
to think twice about getting into that bite suit.
