As most of you know, I am a real dog lover. I love all animals, but especially dogs. I have had four wondrous canine companions in my life and I loved them all very much. My last dog, Megan, is the one you see in my photo. She passed away some years ago with epilepsy.
A friend of mine, another dog lover, sent me this story. If you don't want to cry (like I did), go no further. This story is one that I will always remember. Also note that Duke has only three legs.

This Story Of A Dog’s Last Day On Earth Is Beautiful And Utterly Heartbreaking

As most of you know by now, our town has undergone, and is still undergoing, a tragic experience where three of our police officers were shot and killed and two were wounded by a mad gunman a couple of days ago. The gunman was charged yesterday with three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
I would like to do my part in blogging a memorial to the three fallen officers and say a prayer for them and their families and to the RCMP family who are taking this particularly hard.
Const. David Ross, 32, from Victoriaville, Que. Dave came to N.B. in 2007. He was an avid church-goer where he met his bride and was an animal lover. He was a police dog handler and leaves behind his wife, Rachel, who is six months pregnant, and their young son. Ironically, he lived just 100 meters from where he was killed.
Const. Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, 45, from Boulogne-Billancourt, France. Fabrice came to Canada in 1991 with only a suitcase for a better life. He was posted to the Codiac RCMP detachment in 2008 and worked as a general duty police officer as well as on the dive and search team. He rescued and recovered many swimmers and boaters.
Const. Douglas James Larche, 40, from Saint John, N.B. Doug was posted to three RCMP detachments since 2002, most recently in Codiac where he worked in highway patrol and as a general duty officer. In 2008 Larche received a Commander's Commendation for saving the life of an unconscious baby in Moncton.
Const. David Ross and his wife Rachel taken last month.
I know we, as a town, have all become stronger because of this tragedy. I say a prayer for all our men and women in uniform who risk their lives to protect us each and every day.

I blogged yesterday that our city was on lockdown after a gunman killed 3 police officers and injured 2 others.
The gunman was captured shortly after midnight in the backyard of a local residence behind a row of trees. He gave up without incident and left his weapons in the back yard of the house.
I would like to remember the fallen officers:
Const. David Ross, 32, from Victoriaville, Quebec.
Const. Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, 45, who was born in Boulogne-Billancourt, France.
Const. Douglas James Larche, 40, from Saint John, New Brunswick.
Please pray for their families and for the entire RCMP family as they go through this terrible time.

In my town last night a heavily armed gunman shot and killed three police officers and critically wounded two others. He is still at large but the police are surrounding him.
The entire city is shut down. Everything is closed and hardly a car is moving. Until they catch this person, the city will be locked down. Helicopters are everywhere.
I can't believe this happened in a close-knit, serene and quiet community like this. One wouldn't think that this could happen here. But, in the times we live in, it can happen anywhere.
Please pray for the families of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers killed and wounded. Pray for this city to come together. This is a terrifying situation right now.
God Bless you all!
