    Funeral for Fallen Police Officers

    Very sad day as the 3 police officers who were killed last week were laid to rest. The one officer was a dog handler and even his German Shepherd was sad. Something about an animal mourning his master makes this even sadder.

    I'd not bother to rescue you from a German Shepherd gnawing on your leg......

    I think it's sadder because we cant verbally express to the dog what happened. It's disheartening to see him in pain.

    The dog knows its master is dead...and that's all that matters.

    this. My brain gets going about my pet, my past pets, and pets I might have in the future. I needed to get to sleep last night, not let my brain tangle with that for days.
