West Seattle ‘police dogs’ gain fame via Facebook

June 22, 2012 at 1:37 pm | In Pets, West Seattle news, West Seattle police | 22 Comments

If you follow the WSB Facebook page and/or the Seattle Police Department Facebook page, you’ve probably seen the photo of those 2 Bichon Frises already today, but in case you don’t, we’re sharing it here too. SPD put it on FB in honor of Take Your Dog To Work Day; we shared it on the WSB FB page, without having any clue at the time that the dogs – as we were informed a while later – are West Seattleites! We’ve also heard the photo was shown on NBC’s Today show this morning and is expected to reappear in an NBC News Take Your Dog To Work Day photo feature.

  7. Uh, yeah, that’s cute and all, but that cannot be a good idea for police. Adding distractions and untrained animals is not exactly good for the humans or the animals. I hope that was just staged and then the dogs were immediately taken out before he actually went to work.

  8. From the part of the backstory I have heard, yes, something like that. They were/are not out on patrol. The photo was taken for fun and somebody recognized its over-the-top cuteness and … the rest was history.

  9. Love the contrast of the cute fluffy dogs against the street-cruising, law-enforcing police car. Very clever and very cute.

  16. There’s at least one commenter, that regularly posts “Book’em, Danno!” on crime story comment threads, here on WSB.

    .

    I think this is an appropriate thread for that, as well. ;-)
