Sense and Nonsense: Let's hear it for Rudy and anyone who's loved a dog

Kudos to the Benton Police Department for showing the local community and the rest of the world that police officers have a heart.
Too much of the time we see the absolutely necessary stern fronts they have to present to the public. Police people try not to reveal the mushy, gushy stuff because their very jobs — often their very lives — depend on it.
But underneath the blue are the same feelings the rest of us have and are allowed to display openly, without apology.
This is all being said in response to the tender ending that was afforded to K-9 Rudy.
