Sending off a Retiring Friend

Blu went nose to nose with McGruff the
Crime Dog.  He's a bloodhound too!

Buddy's had a cake with Snoops name on it
Today was a big day for Blu.  He attended a back to school safety event at Buddy's Home Furnishings and it was a big send off for his pal Snoop.  For nearly eight years, Snoop has served the citizens of Tampa faithfully as a search and rescue K-9, specifically trained to find lost and missing children. Over the years, he's visited the State Capitol, rubbed noses with the governor and has been an important liaison for the police department. But his most significant role has been educating thousands of kids in the importance of being aware of their surroundings and staying close to their parents. Snoop's signature bloodhound ears and drooling personality have made him the perfect approachable ambassador.

Snoop's last official day of work is August 22nd. Blu has big paws to fill, but he's up for the challenge.

At just over 30 pounds, Blu has a lot of growing to do to
catch up with Snoop.
Enjoy your retirement Snoop
