Kaiser

Kaiser, a 30 month old German Shepherd canine officer for the Plymouth, Massachusetts Police Department, was euthanized last Friday due to the ravaging effects of severe liver and kidney disease.

Kaiser's handler, Jamie LeBretton, had announced last Wednesday that his partner had retired from the force that day. He sadly noted a ceremony at Angel View Pet Cemetery would follow Kaiser's final trip to the Court Street Animal Hospital.

Honor guard

Kaiser was met by a silent, respectful group of his fellow officers, who stood at attention and saluted him as he followed his partner and friend.

Partners

"I feel privileged to have had a front row seat to witness his bravery and heroic actions while serving the people of Plymouth and my brothers and sisters in blue," Officer LeBretton said. "Although his career was short-lived, he made a huge impact that will never be forgotten."

The Plymouth Police Department depends upon contributions from the public to operate and maintain its K-9 unit. Please consider making a donation online here, or send a check to:

Plymouth Police Working Dog Foundation

The fidelity of a Dog is a precious gift, demanding no less binding moral responsibilities than the friendship of a Human Being. The bond with a True Dog is as lasting as the ties of this Earth will ever be.

Quotes of the day: Robert Fulghum

Robert Lee Fulghum (born June 4, 1937) is an American author, primarily of short essays. (Click for full Wikipedia article).

Above all, if what you've done is stupid, but it works, it ain't stupid.

Always trust your fellow man. And always cut the cards. Always trust God. And always build your house on high ground. Always love thy neighbor. And always pick a good neighborhood to live in.

And sure, I know if you eat this way you'll die. So? If you don't eat this way you're still going to die. Why not die happy?

Anything not worth doing is worth not doing well.

Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.

I am a fragment of a mirror whose whole design and shape I do not know.

I've always thought anyone can make money. Making a life worth living, that's the real test.

If I don't have time to live my life well the first time, when am I going to find the time to go back and live it over?

If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.

If you want an interesting party sometime combine a few cocktails and a box of crayons.

It doesn’t matter what you say you believe- it only matters what you do.

Just when you thought that you already learned the way how to live, life changes- and you're left the same as you begun.

Liberation, I guess, is everybody getting what they think they want, without knowing the whole truth. Or in other words, liberation finally amounts to being free from things we don't like in order to be enslaved by things we approve of. Here's to the eternal tandem.

Making a living and having a life are not the same thing.

Once you know where the roller coaster is going, are you in for the ride?

Speed and efficiency do not always increase the quality of life.

The examined life is no picnic.

The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.

To ponder is not to brood or grieve or even meditate. It is to wonder at a deep level.

Until you have experienced raccoons mating underneath your bedroom at three in the morning, you have missed one of life's sensational moments.

When you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together.

Why is love easy? I don’t know. And the raccoons don’t say.

Yelling at living things does tend to kill the spirit in them. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will break our hearts.

You are free to give life meaning, whatever meaning you want to give it.

You will continue to read stories of crookedness and corruption- of policemen who lie and steal, doctors who reap where they do not sew, politicians on the take. Don't be misled. They are news because they are the exceptions.

All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten.

-----

Everything I needed to know in life, I learned in kindergarten. Like, always check for extraneous roots when squaring to remove the radicals.
-Unattributed
