"Make my Day" by Alpos, HPD K-9 (Guest Blogger)


The other day I had just finished searching a large hotel and capturing a bad guy who had robbed someone, when I met a young man named Zach. I had been in an attic for over an hour and I was in the back seat of my patrol car getting some cool air. I noticed Zach walk by the car. I gave a bark and said hello. I saw Zach smile. He asked my partner if he could meet me. When my partner said yes, his entire face lit up. I had just fought and captured a bad guy and I really wanted meet one of the good guys, especially one that wanted to give me some love. I gave him a big lick on the side of his face and posed for this picture.

The cool thing about this whole ordeal is that while I was still excited and stressed from a long search and having to fight a bad guy, I was still able to make Zach's day. However, it actually made my day.

I am Alpos and I am a HPD K-9. I love my job and knowing that I am helping protect humans like Zach from bad guys makes my day, everyday. I wouldn’t trade a million boxes of milk bones for this job.

I really love this blog. It has inspired me and many of my friends to become HPD. I wish you had more academy classes going on.

I know Alpos and "his partner". Officer Smith is a very nice person and a good police officer. We appreciate all the hard work you both do on a daily basis.

God bless you Alpos, I hope I'll have a K9 dog like you when I become a K9 Officer.
