I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Important request for action! It's easy!

Khyra told me about this.

Below is a direct cut 'n' paste from the Bumpass Hounds

END OF WATCH - MEMORIAM
Hey Hounders,
It's me, your ole buddy Jubal, a.k.a. Big Jubes, with today's post. Our sissy Sarah, and her Husband, Da Beel, are both polices. Sissy is a canine handler. You may have seen our posts of her bomb sniffing dog, Aldo, playing with our own blind guy, Radar. They is both Golden Retrievers but of the red variety.

Well, sissy had a very close friend who was a Virginia State Trooper. Virginia State Trooper Jessica J Cheney was killed when hit by a car on Rte 1 in Stafford County, VA. Jessica was doing her job. Her "End Of Watch" (EOW) was 1/17/1998.So here's the deal, the Toyota Racing Group (please disregard any "recall" thoughts) that supports the National Association for Stock Car Automotive Racing (NASCAR) is having a contest where one of their cars will be painted in a special design scheme for a race. Well there is a design that is a memoriam for Trooper Jessica. We'd like y'all to go to the Toyota Racing site here and click on the "vote" button in the lower right hand corner of the window to vote for Trooper Jessica's memorial design. If you select the 3D view you'll be able to see Jessica's name and EOW date on the hood of the car. It doesn't cost anything and you can vote every day for the next 13 days; so please vote from as many different computers as you have access to. We would certainly appreciate it very, very much. Sissy misses Jessica, who was robbed of her life in the line of duty at such a young age.
