How about addressing Bruno by his name, instead of just dog!

As a retired K-9 handler I can not imagine how much pain the handler and Bruno are in right now. You both and your family are in my prayers.

As a retired K-9 handler and trainer I agree with Jeff. The relationship with the dog becomes almost like a child to the handler/partner and when a dog is injured or lost it is very painful.

Mickey the reason they call Bruno a dog is because some people watching the news can't seem to separate the dog from a human. We all see these mental blurring of facts by people working the streets, so the media tends to overly clarify things sometimes, and fails to other times.

My Prayers go out to Bruno, his handler and family and other officers who feel the pain of this incident.

Jeff I agree and my prayers go out to the handler and his family, and Bruno, as well as any other officers who feel for Bruno.

I lost my K-9 in PR. She was so good. It was another rookie handler that forgot the feeding instructions. However, she was so good and I loved my TANJA.

Bruno get better quick. You saved other officers from possibly being killed and you did it without hesitation. Good Luck

I agree with Mickey... stop addressing Bruno as "the dog" OR even as "its". He's a living, sentient creature who deserves the medal of honour. You wouldn't address a person as "the human". Please respect him enough to address him by his name.
