It's Official. Blu the Bloodhound has a blog - yes a dog with a blog

OK everyone, it is official. TPD’s newest “recruit” has a name and a blog….yes he’s a dog with a blog!  Blu the Bloodhound went home with his new handler yesterday, K-9 Officer Dave Savage.  Officer Savage is new to the K-9 team, so Blu and Dave will be learning the ropes together.  Stay tuned to Blu's blog for updates on their training and of course the growing pains that go along with learning new tricks as a K-9 team.  We'll also "dig in" to some much deserved puppy playtime.  From his first day here with his new TPD family to his first day on the street catching the bad guys, you’ll see it on his blog. 

As a side note, he’ll be making his debut with the media on Monday, July 1st at 1 p.m…..but shhhhh, we haven't told the media yet.  We need to start working on his “bark”ing points so his interviews go well.

These are his first pictures in his new home.  Officer Savage is getting him used to walking on a leash.  Over the next couple of weeks, the team will head out to as many places as possible to get little Blu used to new sounds and places.  After all, we need a confident dog to chase those bad guys.

Officer Savage and Blu are going to take the next few days to get to know each other, but check back next week for more updates

Making Friends with the officers

The decision is made. TPD's newest "officer." The 10-week old, yet to be named boy is starting to bond with his new human partner. Stay tuned to this blog for more info on our new edition. He has big shoes to fill since his predecessor Snoop retires this year.  Stay tuned for name and training updates.

Decisions, decisions, decisions, decisions.....which one of these adorable Bloodhound puppies will be TPD's newest "officer."  Stay tuned.
