i don't buy that shit.
those dogs are like family to those officers. they work with them all day, spend off duty time training them, then bring them home every night. he was likely the only handler the dog had.... and all K9 officers i know consider their dogs as family and as a partner.

you'd forget about them about as readily as you'd forget about a child in a car.

i mean, he's basically saying that he got out of the car and the dog was silent. it didnt bark when it realized it wasnt getting out too? that's bullshit....

It didn't seem to stupid as a movie title or certainly as the Doctor's robotic dog but in this case it just reminds me of prepubescent children writing "kewl" or something equally ludicrous.
Canine is a domestic dog while K-9 is a working breed or assistant-type dog

K-9 for the movies is the same as GR8 = great... leetspeak

Leetspeak or leet is a substitution cipher created by computer users by replacing Latin letters with various codes that are meant to imply the same thing. The term is derived from the word “elite,” and leetspeak was originally used by computer hackers. The concept has entered the mainstream, and is now used by gamers, in instant messaging, and text messaging.

In my city the police cars are equipped with emergency systems to avoid this situation. Whether the squad car is running or not, if the temp increase to a certain point the windows go down (they have metal mesh) and the officer is remotely notified (key chain beeping).
Then if the temp still increases more and hits a certain point, the car doors are opened, releasing the dog and the officer and dispatch are notified.... and hopefully no one is speaking German nearby lol

No clue how you forget a living creature?!


I've rarely had animals in my car, but, they came out with one of us, as do children. I care for children every week.

They are always the first things to be taken out of the car and depending on their age, in a safe place, if too young to sit or play for a couple of minutes.

'phooey' was my father in law's command for stopping his dog from attacking. the rest of the commands were in German as well.

In the city in which I live, the cars that carry dogs are labeled, "K-9 Unit."

I thought it was a universal thing.

they do that here too. they are very involved in raising the dogs as well:

Quote:
The Spokane Police Department’s first dogs were imported German Shepherds trained in Schutzhund (protection dog sport). The department soon started a unique puppy program with these dogs. The dogs are bred and the puppies are placed in the homes of interested officers. The K-9 Unit supervisor monitors their growth and at approximately one year of age, the dog is then tested for his potential to be a police dog. Over the history of the K-9 Unit, six of our police dogs have been products of the puppy program with several others placed in departments throughout the Northwest.
they have a site dedicated to just the k-9 unit, they have a 'top dog' competition with the dogs to see which one is 'the best'... you can even print out trading cards with local officers and their dogs if you want....

but this asshole claims he 'forgot' his partner in his car.
