    Police dogs get protective vests

    Dallas Police have 13 four-legged officers and they will now all have access to bullet and stab proof canine vests during potentially dangerous situations.After seeing a news story about a canine officer killed on duty, Texas native-turned-New Mexico resident Susie Jean asked local police if they had the $2000 vests for their dogs.When they said no–she raised the money herself.“The dogs don’t know they’re going into danger,” said Jean, the founder of Vest N Police Dog Protection. “They do what their officer says. They’re so loyal, so why not protect them? The majority of the time, while wearing these vests, they’re going to be protected and saved.”Now eleven years after founding the non-profit, Jean has helped outfit 734 police dogs in 43 states.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    Cool deal! We're in the process of raising money for ours.

    Here's a story on the local efforts: Lowest-paid APD workers enjoy training; need a new suit to bite » Abilene Reporter-News

    The chew toy in the bite suit happens to be my youngest.
