Inspiring Story
A narcotics detection dog with the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department in Texas had to be put down this week after his terminal bone cancer had become too painful to bear. To honor the 9-year-old German Shepherd Dog, named Argo, the department honored him with a “Last Call,” a radio tribute given to officers who die in the line of duty, often during funerals.
