Gladstone Public Safety K-9 will be welcome addition

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Bonnie (BJ) Potts:

I want to say how thrilled I am that Gladstone Public Safety will now have the ability to get a K-9 member to join their team. The fact that they came up with so many donations in such a short time is testimony to the fact that we have some very generous and caring people in our communities of Gladstone and Escanaba. With all the drug problems these days, K-9 assistance is greatly needed in all communities. I am hoping that they get a Belgian Malinois (the same breed that Escanaba has). I recently enjoyed the K-9 demonstration at the senior center in Escanaba. I have owned three Belgian Malinois myself in the past 20 years and they are exceptionally intelligent, fearless, agile, and so committed to their jobs. I showed two of mine in agility, obedience and rally, and they were also certified therapy dogs. We visited the nursing homes in this area for several years with other kennel club members. They are not, however, a “lap” dog and I do not recommend them for pets for anyone who can’t keep them busy. They have an intense desire to be “working” or at least getting plenty of exercise of some type.
