  1. Another officer was bit by a K9 during the incident. I can hear it now -“No, down boy! No, No I said down!!” I know for a fact that these dogs are well trained so this must have been a bit too much of an exciting time for the dog.

    • Provided of course the K-9 was a police dog, nowhere in the article does it say if the dog was a police dog or belonged to the home owner.
