Special dogs at rest at last

Special dogs at rest at last
By Terri Bryce Reeves

PALM HARBOR – They were intelligent, courageous and possessed a strong work ethic. They protected us from the bad guys and searched for our lost loved ones. One once wore makeup and beads to work, and another devoured two cooked chickens that were supposed to be a family’s dinner. They were Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office police dogs that served the citizens of this county between 1986 and 2005.

On Tuesday, the 12 retired dogs were eulogized during a memorial service at the Curlew Hills Memory Gardens Pet Cemetery. Their remains will rest forever under granite grave markers, surrounded by oaks, roses and azaleas. On this afternoon, each handler remembered his dog or dogs, the good times and the good catches.

There’s more . . . .
