Anyone who owns a dog will appreciate the temptation of wanting to take cute photos of your pooch whenever you feel like it. Cute dog pics are the perfect thing to post on social media, and get lots of attention from your family and friends.
A Texas police officer along with his service dog have gone viral, after a woman took a photo of them taking selfies together. Officer Andre Cloyd and his service dog Ziggi were patrolling at Love Field Airport when a woman noticed them resting and taking photos.
Because of the overwhelmingly positive response of people online, Andre responded by sharing the selfies that everyone had been so desperate to see. Talking about the photos, Andre said:
“They captured what’s just everyday life for us. We weren’t doing anything special. We take photos together, we watch movies together, we go to the gym together.”
He also spoke about how much he loves being a part of the K-9 unit of the Dallas police force, saying:
“To get paid to do something you’ve loved since the age of four, it’s a privilege, definitely. Zigi’s the star, but even more so, we’re just a small piece of a unit, a department and a law enforcement community that does everything we can to ensure the safety of the passengers.”
This story just goes to show the amazing relationship police officers develop with their canine partners, and we’re so fortunate to have Zigi and Andre out there protecting us.
And when we see how affectionate Officer Andre and Zigi are when they’re together, it’s a story that certainly warms our hearts. Keep up the great work guys and thanks for looking out for us!
