This has been all over my local news. I prayed for Jethro to recover; when I found out he died I cried.
I still cry...
and for those who say "it's just a dog" you are SO wrong and frankly STUPID. Jethro was an officer and he gave his life while saving others...he is a HERO and deserves RESPECT.

I would LOVE to go to the Memorial Service but my mom has a doctor appointment (she has cancer) and my dog has a grooming appointment...I guess my way of honoring Jethro will be to take care of my loved ones and to make a donation for K9 vests.

Rest In Peace Jethro.

Thank you Joyce.
